A Sunset this Time

As I mention often, I don't sell the items that I create. Most of them are samples for tutorials or classes. And many times I create to gift.

Well I shared the moonlight Strip Collage Patchwork piece that I created recently and my sister saw it :) She said that she also wants one so I said ok I will gift it to you. She wants different colors :) A sunset.

I reminded her that I don't buy fabrics for projects and I am not sure that I have enough pieces left to create another Sunset. Her answer was that she knows that I will succeed. I am the older sister and the one that always provides the solutions.

I went to that box where I keep all the remnants from the sunsets that I have created.

and I pulled these pieces out

and began to play

orange pink and purple fabric strips

I added some purples to the mix - its going to be a darker sunset and some white and pale yellow

and then I took the white out

And chose some pinks from a packet of tie dyed strips

Next I had to find threads in the right color shades, sone of these are cotton so they will be removed from the mix.

And yes she was right! I found fabrics for a sunset in the colors that she likes.
