my brain on fabric

2013-05-18 006

Remember that old commercial?  You saw an egg and a voice said, “Your brain.”

Then someone cracked eggs into a skillet and said, “Your brain on drugs.”

This is my brain after having used a giant box of fabric scraps.  It’s called a “Spiderweb” quilt and this is one of its many variations.  A couple of years ago I took a lot of my scraps out of bins and cut them into 1 1/2″ strips.  Those that were too small for strips were sewn together to make sheets of new “fabric”, which I cut into the shapes you see between the circles/webs.

Believe it or not, this is a very relaxing project.  Almost brainless.

I don’t know how large this is going to be.  I have enough scraps to tent my house.  I guess I’ll just keep stitching until I (a) run out of fabric, (b) grow bored or (c) go color blind.

    The Spiderweb Quilt is an incredible work of art. I can’t believe you could put it together mindlessly, not possible. I love the colors. It might be that I have been on heavy duty pain pills for the last 3 weeks but I see genius in this creation!!!

  2. Thank you! Pain pills are attracted to bright colors. 🙂 I bought many of these fabrics during the Year of the Finger Surgeries!!
