These two pictures were taken by someone who attended a lecture by Becky Goldsmith, the creator and originator of the dotty circle quilt I’m working on. What I found interesting is her choice of fabrics. As we quilters in the universe work, we’re always comparing our efforts and choices by the photograph we have either from their website or in the pattern or book. And certainly that’s hardly accurate. I was quite interested in her range of fabrics here, how the the jumps between the corner pieces are more pronounced that they show in the photograph that I was working from. See this allowed me to open up my choices, and be a bit more adventurous.
I’m not as adventurous as the Australian quilters shown in on the Material Obsession website, but I could certainly stand with some loosening up, I think. These photos, and the ladies at Material Obsession are good examples for me.
