Let me make a start on this post by showing a photo of a lovely cloud formation a few nights ago
the last rays of the sun were catching the edge of the cloud, I made out onto the drive to take a photograph
and love looking at this, it will be printed out and pinned above my cutting table, perhaps it will cause the frustration I'm feeling presently to dissipate!
Maggie Pearl has been frustrating me no end. I have seen quite a few of these quilts and they were beautifully restrained with soft colours, yes, why not try passing on my usual colour choices and go restrained, I wish I hadn't followed that particular path. Blocks were made and up on the design wall they went, more blocks were made and even more blocks, I still wasn't too happy at all.
Layout two days ago and excuse the uneven photograph, I was perched on a set of drawers all set up with a bed for Leila, also the blocks are just 'thrown' up there leading to some higher than others
I didn't feel this was a 'me' quilt in progress. What would happen if I changed things around and added bold and bright blocks in the style of the middle block third row down, here they are again
