Since I started designing things on my own, whether postcards, art quilts or big quilts, is that I try to force myself to come up with various options. I don't allow myself to start on anything until I have at least 5 ideas. I don't know why I picked 5 but it seems to get me beyond the obvious answers.
I'll share my first 2 ideas but not the rest. I've been wanting to do another pure kaleidoscope so when I first heard "stretch" I immediately thought of doing a kaleidoscope with the points extending to the edge of the space. That might still be fun to do but I passed. The second idea was to do a lopsided kapeidoscope in kind of an amoeba shape. It's another one that might be fun but I'm not going there either!
I'm in idea #4 and 5 is hanging around the edges of my brain. If I get to September 1 without a settled idea I may have to spend more time in my idea incubator - the shower! That's where I seem to solve all problems. Labor Day weekend is my deadline for starting.
