Catherine Whall Smith . . . gets MESSY!

Right now I’m reading “Messy” The power of Disorder to Transform our Lives by Tim Harford, which celebrates messiness in our lives: why it’s important, why we resist it, and why we should embrace it. It is important to note that . . . “the tendency to work on multiple projects is so common among the most creative people that it should be regarded as standard practice. Multiple projects cross-fertilize. While paying close attention to one project, we may be unconsciously processing another. ”

I have to say I totally agree – as shown below – this is what ONE of my design wall’s can look like on many occasions! Messy – maybe not! – I’ve been using improvisational techniques for so many years that I am very comfortable with “the mess”. It’s spontaneous without a specific or scripted preparation.

Eventually the “Mess” will be resolved until it may look like the neat & tidy section shown below:

Once satisfied with the finished product I will then take the quilt top off my design wall to start the process of hand-quilting the three layers together. Can it get any better! OR MESSIER!
