What? That's it? That's almost too easy.
Ha. Not as easy as it seemed. I spent more time pondering, fretting, writing, and stewing over this challenge than any of the others she has given us this year. I have 14 pages of notes and sketches in my TIF sketchbook for this challenge alone. The ideas I had were either too trite or too complicated for the 4" x 6" format I've chosen for this project. Sheesh.
Finally I dug around in my stash for the umpteenth time and pulled out a ruler print I'd recently acquired. It's one of the Wee Play coordinates from Moda:
I fussy cut a strip with the numbers 1 through 6 and another strip with 7 through 12. Fortunately the strips fit beautifully within the 6" dimension of my postcard format! I figured each inch could represent one months' challenge and I would give myself a gold star for each challenge I had completed. Still a pretty simple concept but at least I have something to show for July. Went ahead and gave myself another gold star too!
And there has been a little action on the new preemie quilt:
Just adored your ruler concept to measure the half-way point.ReplyDelete
Love your TIF challenge piece! What a great idea - and the gold stars are perfect! The preemie quilt is lookin' good too. Good for you!ReplyDelete
works for me :-) great ideaReplyDelete
Great idea. After 14 pages of notes that didn't take for one reason or another did the idea for this just happen and the piece go together or was it still a struggle?ReplyDelete
