TIF - March - Done!

I have been working on a project that I'm not ready to show you yet. But when I reached a point where I needed a break I started thinking about the Take It Further challenge for this month:

This month's challenge is to pay attention to the tiny details.

You can read about my initial response to this challenge here. I thought about doing a postcard quilt that would convey an impression of sunlight shining through a glass window/door like this:


Apparently that required too much mental effort on my part. Or it just wasn't interesting enough to me to follow through on it.

I got to thinking about the details in my life.

Too many details can become chaos...

But some details are essential:




Thread, a knot, stitches. Buttons can be a decorative detail. Guess the only thing I left out was the needle!

I felt much the same as you and followed much the same process after reading this month's challenge. My rant was just in my hand-written journal. And I thought very much of just making a page with a single stitch, the basis of it all. I love your interpretation of this, puncutated nicely with the knot and buttonhole. Perfect! Marjorie

How neat! Perfect detail for a quilter like you. The stark contrast finishes the design off very well.
