Here is the question that I have been pondering lately.
Which comes first? The Fabrics? The Patterns?
When you are planning your next quilt, where do you start ? Do you head to the store to choose your fabrics? Do you search through magazines for inspirations? Do you start doodling your ideas?
As I walked through all the quilts hanging at QuiltCon, I really wondered how the artist started, and how they determined when the quilt was finished?
For example – look at this quilt. It was made by Leila Gardunia from Iowa. She is a member of the Des Moines Modern Quilt guild. According to the information with her quilt, she basically wanted to see what could be made with wonky wedges.
Did she just grab a stack of fabrics, or is Orange her favorite color? hmmmm
Does one see a stack of fabrics and Bam! A design pops into your head?
What about you? Which comes first for you?
