I few weeks ago while I was swimming in the hotel pool, I had an idea. Still wet and dripping I went to the reception and asked for some paper so I could sketch out the idea while it was still fresh on my mind.
Thing is, I've been collecting my selvedges (and also bought a bag full, or two) with the vague idea that I would like something made from it. A feather something, maybe.
My hotel pool idea was to make a couple and then set them at a thirty degree angle for a smallish quilt (150 ~ 160 cm x 130 ~ 140cm in size)
I started making feathers.
After making a couple of them, I thought again about layout.
First option is straight. I would need about 28 feathers for this one (180cm x 140cm)
Each of those layouts have something speaking for them. What do you think?
Finally, I have a quick finish to show. It's another of the little front pocket bags. I think they are super cute and come together rather quickly. This is number three already and will go to a friend.
