I’ve got half of my quilt all pieced into big sections. I’m leaving it like that as I work on the other half in case I want to make any changes. ‘Cause right now, there is a lot that’s irking me about this quilt, and I have to make some decisions about how much I want to go back and excise and how much I just want to press forward.
Luckily I have lots of time to stitch! Every day that Baby declines to make her debut is another day spent relaxing and sewing. I’m starting to think she is waiting until her quilt is done to come out. I do love these little “cogs” with the vintage mushroom fabric in the center! I got the mushrooms at Goodwill a couple of years ago as a little home-made valance. I was so excited when I realized how well they fit into this project! I might replace the one that has dark blue petals with apple green or chartreuse, if the right fabric presents itself. Or maybe not.
I really want a quilt that is all white and pale like these random bits, with just a few tiny colorful stars mixed in. Trying to resist temptation to start something new before seeing this one to completion! WHY IS THAT SO HARD?!!!
Thanks Jessica for the continuing motivation over at Life Under Quilts! It’s definitely helping me to keep my mind from wandering…
