Step one is choosing a colorway, from that amazing stash of fat quarters I snagged at a local tag sale. (See my previous post to read about that.) As you can see, I'm going for a red hot palette, with smatterings of purple, ochre, and grey.
Textiles chosen, I tear strips and layer them, then weave the layers of strips and baste them in place.
Now I'm in the process of selectively cutting away ... it's both fun and a bit nerve-wracking. I'm hoping I'll soon have some stitching progress to show you.
