I pulled out the bundle, to which I've added a couple of prints over the years, and contemplated. Once you pull fabric for a project, if that love wanes and you no longer are inspired, should you keep it in the to do pile? I decided to look at it carefully, draw it out in my sketch book, and if it still wasn't speaking to me then I would abandon it. I've learned the hard way that if I am not loving the fabrics, then the quilt itself will feel like labour instead of pleasure.

|Sometimes sketching it out helps!|
|Doesn't teal make it so much better?|
|Here is the new pull. This is something I could see being worth working with!|
At the start of this post, I was totally prepared to tell you to dump the pull and go to something you love. And then you tweaked that pull... so good. Is this the Cluck Cluck Sew pattern I used for my C+S Christmas quilt?ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see this progress. I love orange! And just realized recently that orange and turquoise play well together.ReplyDelete
