A couple years ago, a friend announced she was pregnant. I pieced this quilt. But, it just didn’t make me feel very baby boy-ish. So, I pieced her something else. A nice scrap quilt. Lots of color. Very rough and tumble.
She’s pregnant again. This time with a girl. I pulled this out of the closet to see if I could use it instead of starting something new.
Still not a baby quilt to me.
Just to start, it’s perfectly color matched. Both the light and dark fabric colors are featured in the medium focus fabric. And, it came out almost just like the one in the book. My points are perfect.
That said, it just don’t look right. It’s boring to me. It’s sooooooo green; three shades of green.
And, that’s why it’s been folded up in the closet and hasn’t been quilted.
That makes it eligible to be a practice quilt. Lots of open space to fill. And, because the block is feathered star, I think feathers would look good in it. But, I don’t need any practice making feathers right now. So, back into the closet it goes.
Maybe next time it sees light, I’ll be more inspired.
Be well. Have a great Friday. I have no idea what to take to bee tomorrow. Which project is most portable?
Thanks for all your words of encouragement yesterday. Syd did say she’d help me for money. Little brat. Anyway, I got all the big paper peeled off and now it’s time to start the tweezer work. She was less enthusiastic about that. Even for money.
