For now, I’ve shoved the quilting frame in the corner and taken up a new project. I love hand quilting, but only in small doses and this is a honker of an endeavor.
Nothing like going from lighter, solid colors to ‘hey, look, the quilt shop threw up!’
I love color. Any. All. Make it so vibrant my corneas can’t take anymore. 👀. The plan is a modified Jelly Roll Race top. I’ve pieced all the strips end to end. Now it’s on to piecing the top and using a quilt-as-you-go method.
I’ve even got the back pieced and ready to go.
As weird as it sounds and as much as I love each fabric in my stash, it makes me slightly nauseous to cut into a gorgeous fabric. What if I don’t like the way it turns out? Then I’ve wasted fabric! 😫. Anyone else feel this way?
I hope to get it finished this weekend (fingers crossed). In the meantime, I have a fistful of scraps to admire. Golly, I love batiks!
