I've been making notes and looking at lots of pictures. I'm not sure it's going very well. I just have to assume that something is coming together in my brain and it will find its way out when the time is right.
I've looked as some great chair quilts too. Enjoy these links, if you like. Some people don't like to be influenced by others during the design process, so feel free to just pass these by.
Laura Wasilowski did a wonderful series of blue chair quilts. You can see them here. Scroll down to the Interiors section.
I've even noticed chairs in an article about Van Gogh in the new issue of the Smithsonian that arrived today.
For now, I'm exploring a tree/chair idea...
