Thinking that this pattern would be a good stash buster, I cut this quilt out last fall from a bunch of old blue and light pastel prints. I am not sure that I entirely like it -the pieces seem large to me - but it is already cut out, partly pieced, and since I can't seem to settle on a new pattern to work on, this will do. After it is all done and quilted - I am sure I will like it just fine! Why, I am already thinking about a backing, so it must be growing on me.
In this photo, I have some pieced segments laid down on the floor, ready to be pinned together - no pins yet - hence that little pair of bare feet you see - chasing a balloon. He ran into the photo so quickly (or at least part of him ) that his head didn't quite make it!
A good lesson learned - it is nice to have a quilt all cut out and ready to go when you are at odds and ends about what to do. Call it my SPARE TIRE! Next time my creative quilting juices are flowing, I will remember this and cut out an extra quilt to put away for just such a time. Because even though I can't decide about what to make right now, it is good to be able to sit at my sewing machine here and there and make progress on something (without having to make any decisions)!
