Even with 387 projectsa started, I have got a bee in my bonnet to start something new.
I can’t help it. This is called Barbed Wire Fence and it’s in a book called Twosy-Foursey Quilts by Cathy Wierzbicki and it would make a huge dent in the last of the homespun fabric. Basically, everything in the book is cut from either 2 1/2” or 4 1/2” strips. I like that. Simple. And, I bet I could knock this out of the park while Syd and Rob are away this weekend.
Who needs sleep?
I don’t know if I’ll actually do this or try to pick something else that is already started. There certainly are a lot of other projects I could be working on.
Like the perpetual hexie project.
Here I am trying to pick a border…Again!
Do I do medium-dark-medium? Or dark-light-dark?
Actually, neither. I thought I’d like those striped rows better than I do and I’m thinking of taking them out and replacing them with more borders of the hexie flowers. As much work as the quilt is, I really need to settle on something I’m going to really, really, really like. Maybe this weekend, I’ll clear the dining table and lay this on there and just play until I finally find my lost direction. I’m really tired of putting things together and then taking them apart. I’m really ready to find a direction and stick with it. At this point, I’m spending more time replacing sections than I am thinking them up.
So, another thing to add to the weekend to-do list. Figure out the borders and stop thinking about it so I can just build.
Everybody have a great Thursday. Tomorrow I have the day off and Rob and Syd are leaving town and the dogs and I are going to sew. And, garden. And, eat turnip greens and butterbeans and cornbread and sweet potatoes and all the things that I grew up on that Rob doesn’t care for.
Everybody have a great rest of the week. Lane
