I really like this, and yes, I save the smallest pieces.  You never know when you will need just that piece for a project.

ohhhhh ...ye! evil indeed! reading your post about boxes & baskets of scraps, started me thinking about the job of sorting waiting for me upstairs of last summers gleanings --from my projects, yard/estate sales & mil church group giftings. i think i have more scraps and precuts than yardage. but i have always loved the vibrancy of scrap quilts. always loved thier almost collagelike appearance, also love the watercolor blending when monochromatic as my pink mini WIP...so i guess i have ever so slightly drifted into fabric collage :)) ..more of the watercolor blending only, so far...would love to have the time to try imagery as i did in paper years ago - horses and nature...structures would be fun..old barns w roses ...yes, bless your heart lollol...my morning teatime daydreaming will have visions of barns & roses dancing in my still sleepy cerebrum! lollol

Lol- I know about saving the most ridiculous bits of fabric! I actually have boxes and baskets of the scraps. This morning I was poking around Elmer's glue and water mixes and was thinking that one could make a collage using this mix, sew it all together as a quilt and then rinse out the glue....

Now that I think of it - I'll never throw out anything again. (And aren't I evil to suggest yet ANOTHER idea for you!?)  :)

i agree w your observation about the intensity of the contrast between the white birch and the red batique. the added touch of gold accent in w the red and the yellow green leaves, makes this look more like a photograph here than a fabric art piece. this is, as usual, gorgeous. you keep posting these and i may have to do one of your kits! i was folding up a much chopped piece of yardage last night thinking how silly i was, should probably just toss ..but i kept looking at the rich burgundy reds, dark greens .. well anyway kept thinking, someday. i did paper collages years ago... sigh! too many ideas

My latest landscape, this one is a kit I designed and selling at my store. (patchworksthatpraise.com). The fiery red batik and white birch trunks are a great combination - I feel like those two fabrics do most of the work. lol.
