my creative space

I'm back :)
I love the Doll Quilt Swap flickr group. I do. I hang out there often looking at all the amazing clever people making little quilts. So when I read over here that it was DQS9 sign up time I raced over and put my application in. It is now so big you need to apply! And I'm in!! Woohoo!! 

So today I thought I'd play with diamonds papers and crayons. Thinking a hand pieced diamond quilt....with linen....not sure if the linen will behave yet. Will do a test block and see. But someone else decided they'd have a play too. So my space is, well, messed up ;)

Oh darling, look at your home!! So i'm guessing you're in accommodation in the city, enjoy the break!! Happy getting life back to normal in the home again, love Posie

Dang you are organised. I'd waste fabric and time by making an oodle of mistakes rather then planning like that. You impress me even more! :o)

Such a great idea to do a paper test run. And someone had fun playing with your drawings .

Hmm, I actually think you may have a creative genius in amongst your kiddies. I love the abstract mess! When you're finished I'd stick them onto canvas exactly the way they are now... or if you're really clever you could do your quilt in that design :)

Ah, you'll have lots of fun doing that swap. I did and really enjoyed the process. And very impressive you are playing with the design in paper!

Looks like a great project! I've leaned quilting a few weeks ago so I am just at the "squares sewed together" stage but one day I hope to get to make a more advanced design:) Great idea to practice design on the paper! I am not good at doing it on the computer so I'll definitely try this!
Hope you are well:)
