I wanted to show you this quilt, but I don't have a lot of words to add. I have purposefully chosen to keep this blog only as a journal of my quilting. Most of the time, I'm great with that. I enjoy reading about others' personal lives and find inspiration from blogs that talk about real heart matters and the deep down soul-touching stuff (like this). But, for various reasons, that's not what I'm doing here.
So right now I go blah blah blah di blah about this quilt, when really this is just barely scratching the surface of things I care about, or am thinking about...Well it just feels a bit silly. But, moving on...
I really do like this quilt, and my husband said he liked it too, (without me asking him!) I did some good old-fashioned stipple quilting on this one. I'm still really liking straight line quilting more at the moment, but for some reason, or no reason, this happened.
This quilt is made directly from a pattern in Scrap Republic. I yabbered a bit about this book back here. Somehow I thought this quilt would end up bigger than what it did. It's only about 45" square. I think I'd like to take the pattern and see if I could find a simple way to enlarge the whole thing a bit. Maybe I could even just add wider strips of neutral color.
I found this quilt very gratifying to make. I just indulged my love of bright saturated colors and scrappiness!
