I'M DONE........(in the immortal words of Jacob from one of the Twilight Movies that my 16 yr old son laughs about whenever he hears this phrase)
I have been quilting for over 15 years and as time goes by my quilting likes and dislikes have changed. We all change...we change how we cut out fabric, we change how we do binding, we change which blocks we like to make, and we even change the kind of fabric we are inspired by and purchase.
For years I bought and sewed with traditional fabrics. And I have a lot of it still floating around my sewing room. When Jenny and I decided to do the "Curve It Up" QAL with traditional blocks we each wanted to use different fabrics to show the blocks with alternate color ways and fabric choices. Jenny knew right away she was going to use the orange, turquoise fabrics she had. I couldn't decide, so I procrastinated until the first block was going to be posted in a couple of days, and I hurried and made it out of traditional fabric I had and I thought I would feel great about using up some of my stash.
Well.....after four blocks I'm done! I am not even inspired by my own blocks!!! It is my turn tomorrow to do block #4 and I was dreading using the traditional stuff. I made my block yesterday and did a draft of my post and was depressed about it again.
So here they are in all their muted safe boring glory! And now they're gone.....
The new me for the Curve It Up QAL series will now look like this! I am challenging myself to use just one print and multiple solids for each block. It will stretch my imagination a bit.
For suffering through this post with me, if you LOOK you can figure out what block #4 will be...(hehe)
