YOU HAVE ENOUGH QUILTS WHEN YOUR SOUL IS FILLED,
YOUR CREATIVITY SATISFIED
AND YOUR FINGERS JUST WON'T WORK ANYMORE

New Quilt

I sure wish I could concentrate long enough on one quilt to finish it. Sat down to watch an episode of Simply Quilts while I ate my lunch the other day. A lady was teaching a class on Reproduction Quilts and was showing some of her Antique Quilts. Oh, that looks nice I thought. I'll draw up a block in EQ. Then had a better thought - why not make up ONE block and keep it on the design wall to remind me.



So I made the one block. Looks OK. Pretty quick to make too. So now I have 30 blocks cut out. Why do I have this compulsion to keep starting quilts? I bet I'm the only quilter in the world to do this. :-)

And it looks dull!!!!! The photo below looks better than it does in real life. So hope it improves as I add more fabrics in. I think the background fabrics of some blocks are too boring. I think the busier backgrounds look better and add more interest to the quilt. So may end up with more than 30 blocks

I like the colours and the block pattern - Im sure that, like with your last post - some cleaver bordering will bring it all together!! :)
