So, I Had This Idea.................

Aquifer..........An underground bed or layer of earth, gravel, or porous stone that yields water.


This is the theme for an exhibit opportunity for the AQUA group. My plan is to "wade into the well of creativity". After doing a very rough sketch, I decided on a technique, and got started on my idea. Have you ever realized you picked the wrong technique, once you got started?

I'm using cottons and sheers for this part of the quilt. Rather than using the freezer paper piecing technique, I wish I would have started out using a reverse applique technique. I'm too far along to change my plan now, so I will keep with the program! Once I finish this section, I will evaluate where I want to go next.


We'll see if it turns into anything!

Beautiful water. I can see it permeating under ground. That sounds like a fun challenge.
