Maybe it’s not change, so much as innovation that I have a problem with. I like thinking inside the box where there’s structure and order. Outside the box is chaotic and there’s gnashing of teeth. No thanks. I like following someone else’s pattern and yes, I like quilt kits with their tidy all-togetherness so neatly packaged and sometimes tied with a bow. Sue me. Is it laziness…lack of creative sensibilities…or just simply expedient? I don’t know and frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.
However…(you knew that was coming, didn’t you?)
I forced myself the other night to sit down and just sew. I opened up a scrap box and slapped stuff together willy-nilly just to see what I’d come up with. Behold…
I came up with two oddly sized crazy blocks and a case of Quilter’s Hives. I’m not a fan of either one. Maybe if I make several
hundred more I’ll start to see the appeal of just winging it. Then again, maybe I should bang my head repeatedly against a hard surface.
Happy quilting, y’all!
