Having been away, I realized today how many projects I need to get done ASAP... I was working on the stacked coins quilt, and got tired of the over and over rhythm of sewing all those together!
I wasn't in the mood to machine quilt, and I knew I had to get a baby quilt done. Since I had bought fabric in Florida for the quilt and then, Left it in the hotel room... I was antsy waiting to get the fabric. So I dug through my stash, and started free piecing a bunch of stuff together. (of course two hours later the fabric arrived fed ex.)
I sort of dazed off thinking about, Tonya's 3" letters, Wanda's use of many different prints together, Amy's pin wheel quilt, All the wonky stars people have been making and the 9 patch quilt I just finished... And well, this is what happened with all those thoughts.
It's not something I would normally do. But I think sometimes an experiment can be a good thing to try. I learned a few things, made a bunch of mistakes. (I'm this close to ripping it apart and evening out the background) But I won't. I fight the urge to be perfect.
Most of all and most importantly,
A sweet little baby girl won't mind cuddled up in it.
The evening sun is becoming stronger in our apartment later, which is the sure sign that spring and summer are getting nearer and leaving old man winter behind.
Last night B and I were in the studio, we looked up and saw the amazing light on the ugly buildings... It looked like rainbows in the glass. mmmm. Sort of a stop and smell the roses kind of feeling. We had to grab the camera...
