9.6–SCRAPtastic–Challenge 6 of Project QUILTING Season 9

Final Challenge- Tornado Alley- 10"x 10"

Following the rules of this last challenge, I had to use at least 12 different fabrics. 
This is a scaled down version of a very spontaneous way of creating an image I was interested in trying. 
Basically, you stack 4 pieces of fabric together, stitch in a swirled manner and then cut out sections of those stacked pieces, between the stitching, to reveal the fabrics below. If I were to use larger pieces of fabric , I could cut each swirled piece in quarters and sew them back together in an even more random final product. I really liked this and will do it again sometime I think. 
My title was inspired by a young woman I met this week who was very excited to be in Branson on their Spring Break. As I was drawing her parasol, her family told me a lot about their vacation and themselves. They were from the Oklahoma City area and she was born when a major Tornado hit their town. 
One of my favorite things about my job is meeting our visitors and being being privileged enough to listen to their stories and try to make their vacation memorable.  Here's to you, Mariah!

This is great. Love that you tried a new technique and would really like to know a bit more about it.

It turned out so well I am sure you will try it again.
