the scenic route
inspiration can be a sneaky thing. You see something clever and the very beginning of an idea opens in your mind. Then you work on a few other projects, all the while still thinking about that earlier idea. Months later, having completed a long tour via the scenic route, your hands finally give it shape.
My paper projects feature almost entirely disposable paper. This note card is made from a tissue box, the back of a used envelope and cuttings from the decorative fronts of used greeting cards.
Inspired by the lovely geometry of the Greek key pattern, I crazy quilted the colorful pieces together onto the tagboard.
My stitches aren’t perfect, but my world is mostly imperfect, so it’s just fine with me. Perhaps before long I’ll tackle the larger paper quilt that’s been marinating in my brain for a long while.
Why haven’t I done anything with the Greek key pattern before? It’s classic!
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
