I realized yesterday that I forgot to photograph the back of the auction quilt, thus:
It was an interesting back to put together, not because there's anything particularly interesting about it, but because I'd picked up that aqua/brown dot on sale & thought yes! this will be just right! -- forgetting that the reason that I do not have any of that particular line of dots (I think it's Michael Miller Dumb Dots) in my fairly serious polka dot collection is that I actually find it to be...mildly grating in some way, like the dots are a little too large or a little too regularly spaced or a little too obvious or something. Whatever, I mean, clearly I think way too much about the specific scale & placement of polka dots; the point is that I quickly had buyer's remorse about the fabric, but sternly forced myself to use it anyway, & I think that in the end 1. it works pretty well, & 2. there's that much less fabric hanging around my overstuffed sewing space, so hurrah me.
Although really what I think is that denim chambray is a genius quilt backing & it can make anything look better. It is on its way to becoming the linen/cotton &/or Kona sage of my quilt backing scene. Also: 60" wide, makes my life much easier.
Ok, enough about the quilt.
I have been thinking about PMC (fine silver clay) for probably three years now, & finally took a class a couple of weeks ago. I've had this idea that the clay could give me some excellent flexibility in building chunkier settings for my glitter + resin. So far, so good. (Am taking a PMC ring class in a couple of weeks, very excited.)
