A Rescued Quilt (sort of)
This one was sitting at six completed blocks, and three more with only the outer piece to sew on. It was scrunched at the bottom of a random plastic tub for at least six months. I knew it was there, but I didn't think it would ever see the light of day.
Once in a while, there's just one of those projects that part way through, I just go "what was I thinking?" This was one of those. I just decided it wasn't worth spending my time finishing, and stuffed it in the cupboard. Lots of times I do this, but I know that at some time I'll pull it out and make it work. This one I didn't have that feeling. It just didn't have any potential.
But since I'm on a mission to finish all these half done quilts, I decided to pull out the blocks and put them up on the design wall. I didn't want to spend a bunch of time on it, cause there are too many other exciting ideas in my head, but I really wanted to make this one work Then I decided that what this thing needed was a bit more red. So what could be easier than a red binding?
There really are too many cute fabrics in here. It would have been a shame to leave it sitting in the cupboard.
And then I had to add some more of my favorite print for the back! It feels so good to have it finished up! I can't say that it's one of my brightest moments, but hey! it's still cute, and some baby will love it.
P.S. Notice that tag in the last picture? I just got some new ones and I'm super excited about them so far. Once I've used them a bit more, I'll tell you more about them. (Just gotta make sure that they're as great as they seem to be so far!)
