One of my creative heroines, Melody Johnson, has issued a fun quilting challenge on her blog for February… she’s calling it QAWM – or Quilt-Along-With-Melody. The idea is to make a big dent in our commercially-printed-fabric stashes.
Melody is famous for using (her own gorgeous!) hand-dyed fabrics for her quilts. Fabric dyeing is something I fantasize about evolving into over the next year or so as well. Given that, there is a growing tendency to overlook the stash of brilliant commercial fabrics within easy reach:
…so this challenge is designed to remedy that! Part of the deal is to post our progress and Melody will share participants’ reports on her own blog.
I plan to start with this mix of greens since I have been hankering for green lately!
