|Wedding Ring/Pickle Dish progress|
You see, I always lay my fabric out prior to cutting in fanned out stacks, checking, checking checking, squinting, pondering, maybe pull it in and out of a bag and do some re-evaluation. I make sure it all fits and works together. That's me. Rarely in a rush to commit myself. But then, I usually have my background fabric from the very start too. This time I bought it later. Much later. And it's scaring me. If you know me at all, I like to have plenty of tension in my quilts from fabrics/colors semi-clashing with each other. But what if I pushed it too far this time? I'm sweating it. In fact, I'm not even showing you until I decide what I'm going to do for sure. This is the wrong time to be looking at this pickle dish quilt and wondering why I always have to go and do my own thing. Hopefully this is just part of my very normal process--the roller-coaster ride of me loving and then hating my quilts.
