From Colorplay to Metamorphosis

I've been trying to switch over from "Colorplay" to "2012", and in order to visualize the new size better, I've pinned a 20x12 piece of hand-dyed fabric on my cork board.
I will probably have no time to start working on this new quilt before January, but I've been thinking a lot about it, writing down a few ideas. I also did some very practical transformation experiments. See...
from these elements...
I got this interesting looking material...
and finally it turned into these yummy edible objects...
More seriously, one of my ideas is to take one of the numerous quilts that I have never shown and to change it into something completely different. Not sure this is the way I will go, as I also want to make a 20x12 series.

I think that is the exact thinking outside the box that will make this an exciting challenge!!

Francoise, I agree with Gerrie! I love that outside the box thinking and can't wait to see what you 12 come up with!!!

I had not considered the transformation from ingredients to finished food. Yummy! I especially like the "research" elements of this!
