One of the reasons I like to machine stitch some of the seams on bigger quilts is so that I can cycle through variations and ideas faster. The many phases of a design get lost along the way, and I’ve always thought that was kind of a shame (especially when the ‘best’ version is say, #7, while the finished version is #14!).
If I captured even a fraction of the process it would become clear why a quilt can take so many months to create. And, the hope is that a process that is inherently frustrating will be less so if there is a visual record. What would I learn? We shall see.
Lately I’ve begun to think that I just want to ARRANGE fabric, TAKE A PICTURE, and call it a day. That’s the other extreme… but what IF the product were purely digital?!
In the meantime, here is ‘White House of Privilege’ morphing into something else. The White House has flown elsewhere. To be continued.
I will count this first stab at creating a slide show as a major victory on a day where the computer crashed and my photo uploading developed (new! interesting!) problems.
