Here’s the thing: I’ve only been reading blogs about a year now, and the one thing that amazes me is how quickly some bloggers get their projects done. Bloggers appear to be M O T I V A T E D!
Which inspires me to be a bit more conscientious with my own languishing projects.
So, with that, here’s a quilt I start earlier this year and finished binding today:
Admittedly I’m a little ambivilant about the way the colors all came together. I like it, like it a lot, though I don’t love it yet. I’m thinking if I did it all over that I might keep the eggplant color out. Meanwhile, I’m still basking in the fact that it’s done!! It was modeled after this Chevron quilt, though I learned quickly that all those triangles were sort of driving me crazy; hence the borders on each block.
Here’s the back (which I love almost more than the front):
That floral fabric was the starting point for this whole project. That’s an eggplant thread on Blush Kona cotton. Machine quilted by Elly’s Sheared Sheep.
Next quilt: a 5th grader’s version of Modrian. All my sewing machines are being serviced presently, so I’ll only be cutting fabrics in the next two weeks . . . that is when I’m not finishing a whopper of a cross-stitch project or sanding the front deck.
