Once again I have noticed this quilt block that I saved on my desktop.
I am mesmerized by it. From a quilt made in the 1870’s. I think it would be so fun to make with my zig zag technique. To say nothing of the massive amount of embroidery on it! I don’t want to do that kind of embroidery, but it is definitely a big part of the design concept and the success of the overall design.
I want to go directly to the studio and start cutting out fabric. I even have a collection of fabric that I think would be fabulous for it.
Plus, look! Every block on the entire quilt is using different fabrics and colors. You know how I like that.
But I am in the midst of quite a few projects right now. Some of them are very near completion, and I just have avoided the final bit of work needed to finish them.
And, I don’t even want to say it out loud, but the studio needs a massive cleaning out before I mess it up with yet another project.
All this sometimes makes me frustrated. But then I remind myself that part of the fun of a new project is the time spent thinking and refining a plan. Adding this and that, taking away something that doesn’t work as well.
So for now, I will keep this project in the thinkie stage, and remember to enjoy that 🙂
