Firstly, the work-in-progress quilt top, started in the Freddy Moran class and featured in the last post, has been finished. I must confess that I reverted to some of my old habits as I put the last bits of this piece together. I measured and squared up; I guess I am not yet totally Freddified, but I am able to work just a little bit outside my comfort zone. This muscle must be exercised a bit more.
Here’s the finished product:
I remain inspired by this class and am already planning my next quilt in this style. Freddy had many pieces that were horizontally structured, and many in the class tried this method (Hi, Carolyn). I think I will see how I like this layout next time.
AND, because I guilt-tripped myself for starting a new project when I had so many others waiting to be completed, I have spent this week moving three different projects closer to completion, and that this feels really good. So there will be more new pieces posted here soon.
A mistake (?) turned out okay
Even though the effect was not so dramatic, I love this quilt. I think the graphic Sassaman print, made up of black sunbursts and spirals on white, saves this quilt.
Need to encourage myself to make more mistakes??????
