I’ve been seeing this ‘process pledge’ on a lot of blogs and finally took the time to investigate. What a great idea. I’m in.
Here are some of the prompts/things to think about that they suggest:
- Do you have any new sketches to show?
- Is this design inspired by a past quilt or someone else’s quilt you saw (link, please)?
- Does the color palette come from somewhere specific?
- Are you trying to evoke a specific feeling?
- Is this quilt intended for a specific person? How did that inform your choices?
- Are you following a pattern, emulating a block you saw somewhere, using a liberated process, or totally winging it?
- What are you hating about this quilt at this stage? What do you love?
- Did you push yourself to try something new?
- In working on the quilt, are you getting ideas about what you might want to try next? What? Did you sketch it?
I like hearing about how others came to their decisions – why they are doing what they are doing – what they were thinking when they made their choices…..it just makes it so much more interesting that just “see what I did”. Perhaps it’s the conversation……it’s nice to have a conversation with people and I guess if you can’t find people in REAL LIFE to have conversations with – on the things that you are interested in – at least you can find a substitute online. Maybe. It’s worth a try anyway. 🙂
So, I’ve taken the process pledge. Click the icon on the right if you want to read more about it and perhaps participate yourself.
I, KLR (aka Sybil), pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them in to words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.
