Though I have been keeping busy these last few weeks, and there are many fun projects that I am eager to update you on, for now I will stick with the quick fix.
MORE POT HOLDERS!
and there's more...
This ever-evolving improv quilt. Still on my design wall, and still making progress:
And after steady attention all of Thursday and Friday, this is where we left each other:
And just to give everyone a sense of scale, note that the layout takes up nearly my entire design wall, which is 8' x 8'. This is going to be one big quilt! Probably too big for my bed, but I'll make it work! It has just taken on a life of its own, and there is no question that the blocks and fabrics are telling me where they need to be and how I should be pulling them together. This has led to moving several things around, and in one case even slicing a block in two and piecing it together in a different arrangement in order to find the right balance.
Who knew that making an improv quilt would require so much planning and consideration?? Not I, said the fly! It really comes down to the fact that the process is good for me, though it's been dominating my design wall just a wee bit too long. Oh, and that I am just no good with large areas of solid fabrics. Just can't get the scrappy-fiend to sit tight and be quiet! Must piece!
