Today I pulled out the Lazy Angle ruler by Joan Hawley. I've had this ruler for a few years but have never even taken it out of the plastic! Woops! Well I got it out today and pulled out some Robyn Pandolph Sentimental Journey odds and ends and did a little cutting. I used the fabric in my very first Crazy Shortcut Quilt; but, I had pieces left that were just too big to throw out - the perfect size to play! Since these really aren't my colours I don't mind chopping into them at all ;-) Don't get me wrong - I like the fabrics but I'm just not in love with them. Why is it I need an emotional attachment to fabric to get really inspired? It's kind of odd maybe LOL!
I chopped and cut and flipped and rearranged and I think I have something kind of neat going on! That's the really neat thing about this ruler. You can get odd shapes with easy rotary cutting in multiple sizes. I'm pretty intrigued - but I'm not in love yet. Maybe if the colours were different? More vibrant perhaps? I just can't decide what my next step will be. Hmmm
That's okay! I have to go and teach a pilates class now so maybe when I get back inspiration will strike and I'll sew tonight. The weather networks are calling for yuck weather so it would be a good night to stay in and sew!
What are you all working on today?
