It pays to play
I have been thinking lately about ideas for unplanned designs and improv inspiration. I like to improv with a bit of a plan (more on planned/unplanned to come), but I had run out of plans.
Until yesterday morning, when I found myself with an hour to play and a pretty stack of Cirrus Solids scraps left over from the Prismatic quilt.
My progress inspired me immensely.
It started with a few improv curves. I liked how some of the skinniest pieces blended together to disappear completely.
And then I kept going. One hour turned into two, thanks to some wonderful encouragement from my Instagram friends.
I’m so happy with how it turned out that I’ve thought of hours worth of more improv-curve plans. I can play with color, with scale, with the arcs of the curves, and I can’t wait to keep going.
This is the beginning of something good.
What’s your go-to plan for fabric play?
