The reason I like colouring in little squares of paper. Time to reveal a quilt………

In my last post I confessed to enjoying the process of colouring in little squares of paper and shuffling them about and arranging them in groups .  Well, time for a confession here, I am a recovering quilt maker so I spent many happy hours messing about with squares (fabric rather than paper).

All the colours were hand dyed by me and the design was drawn up using a drawing programme on the computer.  Many hours were spent rearranging the colours into harmonising or contrasting heaps.

So you can see here, why I enjoyed playing with squares of colour.

    I love ‘On Point’ – it makes me think of visualisation practice and seeing the earth element from the stupa sitting in the blue space that is shunyata. When I first did that practice the square wouldn’t stay still!
