Change/Transformation: a work in progress

A few weeks ago I sketched out the layout of my quilt for this quarter and picked out all the fabric so that I was all ready to work on it when we came back from our Easter holidays.  I'd planned to document progress on this quilt from the beginning, but when I got everything out to start working on it I realised that the sketch had disappeared.  I suspect that it ended up in the recycling bin during the big pre-holiday tidy up, but there's always that lingering doubt that it may be hiding in the house somewhere!  Meanwhile I've given up trying to reconstitute all the details from memory because it seems to be so difficult to get things quite right second time round and have decided to go with the flow and improvise. quilt is based on the idea of change as a cyclical thing, rather than as an irreversible transformation, and I'll leave you with a small and not very illuminating peek.


  1. Thank you for your peek, Catherine. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt :)

  2. I like this interpretation and look forward to reading your thoughts on it and seeing your piece. I can't help but think about how closely it relates to my thoughts on my own piece.

  3. I have a guess of what it might be; but one can never be sure the thoughts of a creative person! I had one (of many) ideas as to cyclical change, but just couldn't see how I would create it. So I chose another route. Looking forward to see what you have.

  4. If you are anything like me Catherine, that sketch will turn up within 5 minutes of you finishing the quilt! Looking forward to seeing how you have interpreted this theme.

  5. Oooh, you have kept us guessing!
    Look forward to seeing your piece.
