The project started with this one statement. I hand stitched using black thread onto texture paper.
At the beginning of this project I came across this image below, showing the research, concept, prototype and design stage of a project. It made me consider the idea of looking at myself as a design problem. For example using the research part to understand why I don’t know what career path to take, looking back over my career choices, education, etc.
I could use this example to make light on not knowing what career path to take and create a ‘the art of getting by’ guide to finding your career.
When thinking about what pattern I would create for my panel, I consider stitching words to represent my career path.
“Much of a Muchness” relates back to my education.
Textiles Pattern – inspiration for my final quilt layout and my personal panel within the overall quilt.
I came across this image ‘Who I Am’ it reminded me of the task you do to figure out what career would suit you best. They say… what you enjoy and what you spend your free time doing should be what you do as a career. What subjects make you excited and talkative, should be consider what looking for a career.
Books I have read, for inspirations around this project.

Colour Inspiration: What colours work better together.
Patone: Spring 2014 colour selection. I really like these colour tones, I did use a shade of blue, green, yellow and purple within my project.
These two images represented how I could lay out my final quilt, they appear to being telling a story.
