ColorForm 4 & 5

I like being able to use more of my small fabric pieces, but have not really noticed a dent in my piles! But making smaller quilts has helped me figure out color combinations better. I have added some stripes, and who knows what will come next?

ColorForm 3

I finished up 3 more of these smaller quilts; this one is 15"H x 22-3/4"W.

Small Quilts

I have started working on a group of small quilts. I have tried smaller quilts off and on, but never felt I had translated what I do into a small work. But with these, I am finding it a good way to work with color combinations, and I can quickly move on to a new idea. At the same time, I have a larger quilt on my design wall that has been more difficult, and I can keep an eye on that and move shapes around, and think about it. At the same time I take pictures, and I have been trying to keep up with putting photos each day of what I am doing in my sketchbook, so I can see the progression of my work.
