As you all know, I've been struggling with my pink and green triangles. I finally decided to work on them a couple weeks ago. But before doing them, I decided to clean up the sewing room (and pick up all the triangles that have fallen off the design wall).
But wouldn't you know it, when cleaning, I came across a group of fabric I had pulled for a baby quilt. The baby ended up being a girl, so I went with the more girlish stack of fabrics, and this group was left behind.
Before I knew what was happening, these fabrics were cut up. And while I was cutting those, I might as well cut a few more for another quilt I had planned to make, right? And then I could put the fabrics all away and have a clean place for my triangle construction, right? Well, no.
You know I started sewing the pieces. Just for the one group of fabrics. A little sewing wouldn't hurt--just to make sure I didn't need to cut more before I put the fabrics away, right? The stars felt like an antidote to the green and pink. A cleansing of the palate, or palette, so to speak. Sure to get me ready for the triangles, right? Well no again.
The stars are assembled, but I think I will do some sort of border with the leftover pieces. We'll see. I really enjoyed working with these colors. I'm calling this one Shine--as in let your star shine. You can see my tax return bins on the edge of the next photo. I'm still trying to organize our financial records/paperwork (35 years makes a real mess!)
I started on the other quilt I cut this weekend too. No photos of that because the camera has decided to go on strike. And no triangle sewing so far.... I may need an intervention.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
