From Colorplay to Metamorphosis

The mini colorplay quilts for my fabric book are done. Well at least the tops are. I still have to add some stitching and hand embroidery on the last pages, and I also need to think about the way I will bind them into a book.
Another WIP in my studio is this red shirt that I want to finish before Christmas.

Only one week left, I know, but I think I can do it.
I've also been trying to think "20 by 12" for our next challenge and in order to visualize the size better, I've pinned this piece of hand-dyed fabric on my cork board...

As you know, the first theme is "Metamorphosis" and the deadline is February 12. I will probably have no time to start working on this new piece before January, but I've been thinking about it, writing down a few ideas. I also did some very practical transformation experiments. See...
from these elements...

I got this interesting looking material...
and finally it turned into these yummy edible objects...
More seriously, one of my ideas is to take one of the numerous quilts that I have never shown and to change it into something completely different. Not sure this is the way I will go, as I also want to make a 20x12 series.

The mini versions of your quilts are looking fabulous! It must feel strange to work on a changed size for the series of artquilts!

la taille des quilts est effectivement fort différente ! J'aime bien la métamorphose des oeufs->gaufre :-)

You've been very busy. That metamorphosis research looks yummy! I'm with you, I don't think I'll do anything with my 20 x 12 quilt until after the new year.
