Fabric Shopping

I finished this one on Friday. The only word I'm a less pleased with is NOW because the yellow is a bit too bright. I may make another one or take one of my Shiva paintsticks to that one and dull it down a bit. Or look on it as the most important word.

When I folded my fabrics last week I realized I was very short of red and had only one piece of purple. Yesterday in Fargo I went a little way toward curing that problem.  The green piece is obviously neither red nor purple but it was just too beautiful to resist. Some of the fabrics are from Mill End Textiles in Fargo and some are from Faye's Henhouse in Mayville, one of my favorite quilt store in the world.

I like looking at it as one important word. Be Here NOW! In the moment. :) I completely dig this piece. Great job.

I really like it! As for "now", I like the Shiva idea especially with a metallic Shiva. A little sparkle would dull it down a bit but also keep it focused as the most important word.

I can see that you don't want one word grabbing the spotlight but the brightness of "now" gives it an urgency and a predominance that then applies to all the other words. If you dull it, "now" will be just like the others and as such, takes on a different meaning. Both ways will work. It just depends on what you want to say.

I really like it bright. And breathing NOW is important! :)

I find though I have a fairly large stash of scraps, I seem to have a paucity of red, too!

I really like your green/blue/yellow piece- very pretty. The purples are oh so rich- I love purple but somehow don't buy it that often- I am not sure why- perhaps I don't find it very often in the clearance sections where I frequent.
Your words are wonderful. Thanks for sharing your beautiful piece.
