McElligot's Pool Complete!
This quilt's color palette was inspired by a page from a Dr. Suess book. Read about it here. It's been a long time in the making, but it's finally done.
In some ways it didn't turn out the way I envisioned it, but it's still a soft and pretty quilt!
If you look at the photo of the whole quilt, you'll see that the top and left sides, as well as the top left corner, fade to lighter colors. This was my original idea, and it worked (sort of) in the end. I think I gave up on this quilt and didn't want to make it bigger. A larger quilt would allow for more color blending and give the look I was imagining.
Sometimes though, I just have to be realistic and move on to the next project(s)!
It ended up being a nice throw size, with misc. greens and blues on the back.
By the way, thanks for all your feedback on my geese quilt in progress! As you may have noticed, I've been lacking inspiration with quilting over the last six months. I used to always have oodles of ideas, and now it feels like every quilt I've finished or am working on is just blah...
I know there have been many factors involved, but I hope I can get some direction back soon! The other day I had the thought that maybe right now is the time to just make quilts from patterns for a while. Maybe even just use one fabric collection in a quilt.
If I'm getting bogged down by overthinking my decisions, then I just need to forget about my own ideas for a while!
