Asilomar Project Fabrics–Updated



I have been brewing the 2011 Asilomar Empty Spools Seminars workshop project idea for awhile now in my head and as always, I have been accumulating the fabrics for my design idea.  I have no clue if all of these fabrics will remain, but for now, I am loving the palette.  A faded fresco-like appearance. 

The registration for 2011 Asilomar Empty Spools Seminars workshops  is to open soon.  I know a lot of you like the way I do birds and florals and are interested in that style of design, so the project will combine an urn/vase exploding with botanical elements on a background that mimics an aged fresco-like surface.  I am going to try and use some of those Stonehenge fabrics I bought to create this.  The pattern will end up being approximately 26-28″ square and a medallion style quilt central block design. 

Here is the update:  I created a quick five minute doodle of my idea for a general direction.  The borders will change most likely, I just needed to frame my image for a spacial reference.




I won’t be blogging about its process for obvious reasons in fairness to those students who sign up, but when it is finished, I will show you a picture.  For those of you who are able to sign up and take the workshop, I will post an additional PDF supply information list as well that will be more project specific.  I will post it along with the picture here when complete.

I will obviously have to work simultaneously on two projects, Jason’s pumpkin and the Asilomar project, so obviously progress on Jason’s quilt will slow a little bit.  Jason understands.
