Sample and Experiments

Back to thoughts of sampling -
Another kind of sampling comes when you are experiment. As you know I frequently experiment with this and that. I usually take photos at some stage as well. Here is a photo of my experiments with Kool-aid dyeing on wool.

But for me, I also try to find a way to use the experiments. You may recognise that many of the pieces on the washing line ended up in the Journal Quilts for 2008. See some of them here, here, here and here. They were experiments themselves about combining colour, playing with shape, and getting confidence in Free Machine Quilting.

If you have some recent samples you want to tell me about, I can put a link to your blog in a post sometime this week.
