I.don't.know.what.to.do.next. . . does that ever happen to you? OK, I have my Square in a Square quilt top done, working on the back - more on that nightmare later LOL - and I am contemplating my next quilt. . . and contemplating and contemplating and contemplating . . . Maybe I have over thunk this thing. Maybe I have just not hit on the perfect inspiration. Maybe it will come to me in my sleep. Which, BTW, has been very warm and cozy since finishing the bargello - did I tell you I finished it? Oh yes I did! I am surprised you haven't seen it somewhere. . . I even posted it on the pink flying pig purple people eater blog!! ;) Sorry, I digress. My next quilt is going to be for a teenage nephew. I have been contemplating different styles for months. Just when I think I have the perfect idea, see the perfect inspiration, find the perfect tutorial . . . I either nix it or find something I like better. Is there such a thing as quilt making ADD?? I might have it. Seriously! If you have any suggestions for boy quilts, please share!! Add to my conundrum!! OK, enough of that. I have a few more days to ponder while I finish the SIS quilt - don't you like that better than typing out all those words? I do!! haha
Speaking of SIS. . . Let's talk about my latest little adventure shall we? I finished the front. Thought I would have the back done yesterday. . . Oh, here is a picture of the finished top just to remind you :)
You can go here to see all the particulars about fabric and such. OK the back. I have two different 2 yard pieces of fabric and these 10 extra blocks. Because this quilt is for the hubbin's aunt and uncle, I have been giving him final pick on design. SO, my thought was two rows of 5 blocks sashed with the white and then the two pieces of fabric cut to size one on top, one on the bottom. . . easy peasy done... when I laid it out, not so impressed but it's the back of the quilt right?? Now the way to go at that point would have been sew that sucker together and call it good. . . but you all know that is not what I did don't you? grin . . . I had the two rows of blocks all sewn together with the sashing. . . hmmm, maybe I'll wait till the hubbins gets home. . . NOOO! Don't do it!! LOL I did and here is the end result - I am now ripping those blocks apart. One comment in the conversation about what to do that jumps right out was "You can't send out a 'lazy' quilt" . . . I didn't exactly say it was the lazy way - it was the easiest . . . OK, maybe it was the lazy, just get it done and move onto the next even though you have no idea what you are going to do for the next quilt way. . . Right. So on with the ripping stitches, cutting and piecing. Nothing extravagant, just the right way to finish this one off, not the galloping horse way ;)
In other news, I am organizing my stash. . . ummm, who knew one could amass so much in just a matter of a couple of months?? grin I bought 200 comic boards. . . I need to order more. . . Don't judge me!! LOL I'll be showing the end result off when it is finished. That might take awhile.... Maybe in the process I'll hit on the right inspiration for my nephew's quilt!!!!
