Lately I've been itching to make an art quilt but I haven't had any specific inspiration. So I decided it was time to resort to another method to get started. I went to my scrap boxes and selected some of my favorite fabrics. Most of these give hints of natural elements or have organic lines. The photo shows the fabrics I have selected. Some lights, darks, mediums, and brights. I decided to set up a few rules for my challenge to make an art quilt. I can only use these fabrics that I have selected and posted here. I do not have to use them all, but I can't grab any others from my stash or scrap boxes. So now I will begin. I'll post pictures along the way as I create this quilt. This is one of my favorite ways of creating, starting with the fabric which will lead to the design.
