I don't know about this at all. There is so much more black than I expected that it's taking awhile for me to process and I know. I know. There's no one to blame but me.
Just getting started....
Black and dark brown are my go-to neutrals whenever I'm getting saturated by other colors. Sometimes it works and others maybe not so much. On a different note, I'm kinda wondering if I'll ever remember to vacuum just before I take pictures.*wink
Hmmmm, does it work?
The blocks were rearranged so many times, my eyes were crossing, blurring and basically shutting down on me. It's times like this that I dearly wish I had a very large design wall so I could leave my blocks and come back later with a fresh viewpoint.
The first 5 rows.
Whatever! We do what we can with what we have, right? Here's the first little bit all sewn together. I'm still in that place of insane frustration. Do I like it? Have I wasted 3 years of hand stitching? All my quilts are a roller coaster of emotion for me, but this one feels like it's more important somehow. One thing for sure. Even if it's not a perfect 'match-made-in heaven' mix of fabrics, I feel good about the fact that all of the fabrics are from my stash. All of them. Yeah, I'm loving that.
