I Think it May be a Completed Quilt Top
So..., here it is. Those colors/fabrics I was in the mood to work with? All along they were planned for use in my 'Spring Forward' quilt (which used to be my 'Awkward Tulip' quilt before I decided it needed a more dignified name). Then the little bird looked like it needed to be a different fabric and somehow he/she? got a little chunkier in the transformation. Hmmm, Is that a reflection on what winter has done to me this year?
I will never tell. The office is calling my name again and paperwork is piled so high it's getting harder and harder to ignore these days. Maybe, just maybe, I need to cut back on my quilting time for a few days and re-direct my efforts toward the book work whether I want to or not... But before I attack that particular problem, this quilt seemed to need a little bit of attention before I forgot what it was I was attempting to accomplish with this project. It turned out to be a rather interesting mix of colors didn't it? Impulsively using the white fabric lettering completely changed (and hijacked) the look of this quilt from what I originally intended. As I've said before, white is not my favorite color to work with and so it definitely made for some
aggravation interesting moments. If I can make up my mind to call this the last border, I might actually have another completed quilt top and thus another UFQ ready to move to the 'ready to hand quilt' pile. Be still my beating heart.*wink
