I woke up this morning needing to get into my workroom and find a piece of fabric I remembered last night as I was falling asleep. It is a piece of marbled fabric in a really earthy, acid-y chartreuse color and I bought it so many years ago I don't even remember where or when, but I have never cut into it. With chartreuse being the 12 x 12 theme color this time around it seemed like this might be the time. I decided to make a small piece today for experimenting. I may or may not do something similar for the 12 x 12 challenge. After all the careful work I have been doing for the big quilt I just finished, it felt great to just start pulling fabric, cutting and playing with the pieces until I liked them. Then, my favorite part—adding a lot of crazy stitching. I wonder if I was influenced by the enormous amount of rain that came down today. I wasn't thinking about it at the time, but now that I look at this I am seeing spring rain.
It was fun to start and finish a playful little piece today. It is approximately 6" x 12"
