Yesterday in my Post I discussed that I could not for the life of me figure out why I did not finish the quilt, and why there were so many pieces in another bag that had not been finished. I figured it out today. The fabric line has a piece of fabric (see below) that Nancy Odom used in her Apricot Lilly quilt and I tried to copy the pattern with the same fabrics she used. Obviously I did not like the piece and changed mine to a nice tea dyed background fabric that blended well with her fabrics.
This morning I decided I would just sew up the HSTs and make something. I tried to use the above fabric for the middle of whatever I was going to make and just did not like it. So, here is what I have made with a portion of the pieces that were originally cut out and not used. A pretty table runner. I wish the camera would really show the beautiful bright pink Azelea’s and nice muted green that blends with it. Oh Well. I am going to bind it in the green fabric. I have not decided how I will quilt it. Either on the long arm or domestic.
I put the remaining fabric up for now as I do not want to get tired of using it in another quilt at this time. I want to finish up Section 6 of Stonefields (piecing) and move on to another project. I will have to review my 2 year “list” and make a decision as I am ready to immerse myself in a more challenging project.
Have a wonderful week!
