connections progress

well my connections quilt is slowly evolving - this will be a technically simpler piece than the last few, and a bit quieter in mood.

in the meantime i thought i might show you how i work through ideas.

i make very basic sketches in my notebook and write down ideas for colours, materials and techniques - sometimes having to pull over to the side of the road or leap out of bed to catch the idea before it falls off the edge of my mind.
for this piece i had thought of labyrinths and spirals
but opted for the pleiades as inspiration
add indigo and copper....
