I messed with Half Rectangles today, or at least that’s what I call them.
Has anyone else played with these?
Tucking them aside, but will play more later. They do weird things.
I made some progress on Anything Goes. The pictures are not good and I’m at a standstill.
When I stall out on the direction of an improvisational quilt design my general default solution is too make more blocks. However, this involves buying more linen, so I might stick with the original design option above.
That sounds like I’m unsatisfied with it, but I’m not. It’s that large neutral space. I have to let it sink in my brain that the right quilting can transform that space into part of the overall design. I know it will be simple quilting, but beyond that I’m lost.
Or I could just throw the fabric budget to the wind and start going in another direction with more blocks. But wait, I already threw the budget to the wind…
Sewing with a friend tomorrow, and if I’ve learn anything from my collaboration with Jacquie, it has been that sometimes you need a new set of eyes to see the vision clearly.
I embrace that.
I’m trying hard to stick to my list of unfinished projects, but I’m really itchin’ to ditch it all.
I have a pile up of ideas and am in the mood for a sunny, picnic sort of Summer Love Quilt.
Oh, I think it already has a name.
