So many quilters talk of their many WIP's stacked in perilous heaps and stopping mid-project to start a new one. Because many of my quilts are made to sell or as gifts, I find I don't have this luxury. My mind is constantly boiling over with new ideas for quilts, but it seems there's always another one I need to be finishing up.
Anyways, just last night I got completely caught up on orders, so I attacked the pile of three quilt tops that were making me extremely nervous just sitting there and making little whistles and calls in my direction.
Next I grabbed a top that I pieced from my scraps awhile back, and although I'm not totally in love with it anymore, I'm forcing myself to finish it. I know that once I pull it out of the dryer all crinkly and warm, I'll like it again.
Here's a sneak peak of the front. It uses some tiny strips of pink from my scrap bin and lots of Kona Ash.
Here I am at my design wall, piecing the back. I wasn't sure I was liking this layout, so I took a picture of it, then took a picture with the scooters on top and birdies in the middle and liked that better. I find that it's very worthwhile to take a picture of layouts on my design wall and then go look at it on my computer. It's amazing how you see it different in a picture that in real life. Some of those little things like two red blocks right next to each other, can just pop out at you in a picture.
