This quilt is not rocket science. It is nine patch blocks surrounded by white sashing. Yes, I am doing my best to contribute to the loss of the art of quilting. (Insert evil chuckle)
But, what this quilt lacks in intricacy and hair-pulling paper piecing, it makes up for in the cute and snuggly department. (At least I think so!)
I used some of my favorite fabrics in all my favorite colors. Yes, if I could choose my favorite color combo right at this point in my life, (not next week, or next year, but likely till Friday at least!!) it would be pink, bright tangerine, lime and aqua.
And, there's something about squares that are so satisfying! I always find myself drawn to patchwork square quilts, although I do agree that it would get mighty boring if that's all we ever made!
And just one small aside here: After my ramblings earlier about crediting our inspiration, and whether we're taking someone's idea, or whether all quilt designs are free-for-all, I felt I needed to clarify something.
When I called it rambling, I meant that I was rambling! I did not in any way mean to imply that I thought MY ideas were anything special and that I needed to be given credit. I really was thinking in a general sense, and the reason I'm mentioning this, is that I've noticed a few different people have linked to me or given credit in the last while since I wrote that. First of all, I want to say "Thanks, you gave me a little buzz, and a spring in my step." Secondly, I want to say, I've been feeling a little foolish. I don't want you all thinking that I snoop around the online quilting world looking for people who I think may be taking my ideas. That is not the case at all!
I still think it's a generous thing to give credit for your inspiration if you clearly were inspired by something, but I don't think it's an obligation!
Phew!! That feels better. I was feeling a little sheepish, that I had given the impression I was entitled to recognition for any quilt you might make that might be similar to one I've made! And that is definitely not the case!!!
