Purple House - How I Work - Part 1

I thought that I would show you how I begin a new art quilt.  I make a background pattern with large graph paper, so I am clear on the area that I have to work with. I think that 'drawing' is a good thing.

I could have drawn the pieces directly onto the background, except for the fact that I needed to rearrange them, and then I can use these pieces to cut out my fabrics too, as a pattern piece.

Using the blue painters tape, I can rearrange them on the background.  Right now, I am trying to center the house on the background.  Land under the house, equals the sky above the house.

Now I am thinking about adding a flower vine on each side of the house, which is my usual style, similar to the cup and saucer on the roof.

These are the fabrics that I am thinking about for the house, with each section will be a different print in purple/lavender
