A few of my quilting friends and I recently decided to form an art quilt group that would allow us to stretch our quilting ideas a bit. I am not an artist by the common definition of the word, but I do love to work with fabric and color. Some of the members of the group are more "artsy" than others, but we all want to try new things, which is very exciting. No quilt police will be allowed anywhere near our group get-togethers.
We plan to take turns planning "missions" -- things that will allow us to try new techniques, new colors, new patterns, whatever. As our first "mission", together we decided that we would each draw another member's name out of a hat and then provide that quilter with 4 or 5 fabrics to use in her first piece. These fabrics were to be out of that quilter's normal comfort zone.
The quilter who chose my name gave me the fabrics you see in the photo. Those who know me know why I've titled this blog post the way I did.
I think I may have to quit the group...
