Time for a change at Crows of Arroyos. I am going to move from the Baby Crow Edgar Tale to documenting my next quilt project. I have always wanted to make a folk art picture quilt ever since Sue sent me a book on that genre of quilting.
After pondering the subject matter for a few weeks I have decided to use the Edgar baby crow picture combined with the lovely art form of the madrona trees. Here are the two pictures that I will use as a base design.
Next part of the design is to review my fabric stash. I decided that I would use only what I already have. No need to buy more fabric for this project. So, I got my quilt fabric and scraps out, spread them on the floor and took pictures for you viewing pleasure. The quilt will need a background, a frame border and fabric for the picture. I picked what I think will work best for that. Repurposing the scrap pieces I have for the frame border will save time, then I picked blues for the sky background, green for leaves, browns for the trees and all my black fabric for our baby crow. Here is a slide show of the fabric. Reggie had to help with the process. He is my quilting partner ever since he was a kitten.
Next week I will share how I am doing on the background and border.
