As I've mentioned before, I'm working on 12 lap quilts for the Honor Flight program and I hit a bit of a snag tonight with the seventh quilt. Each quilt will be a different pattern and some of them are the result of me just playing around with EQ and liking what I draw. Well, every so often I draw something or mix and match various blocks in EQ and just fall in love with how it looks. Of course that means I stop what I'm doing and get busy on the new project. (I've just erased all doubt as to why I have a bunch of UFOs, haven't I?)
Well, usually it works well and I like my fabric choices along with the overall design. Unfortunately that's not always the case. :-( Yesterday I began playing around with a Courthouse Steps block variation and liked how it looked but when I started sewing, I began to fall out of love with it. I don't know if it's the fabrics I chose or the layout, but I'm just not loving it! I took a couple of pictures of possible layouts and will make a decision this afternoon as to which one I like best.
Here are the two layouts. What do you think?I'm open to all opinion and thoughts!!
Like I said, I'll make a decision later today so that means I can work on my Stepping Stones quilt until then. YEAH!!
If you didn't get a chance to see the quilt that we're raffling off, click here! I'm really excited about this quilt. I loved piecing it and when I gave it to my friend Rachel to quilt it, I just knew that no matter what design she used, I would love it! Click on the picture to get a close up of the quilting. I LOVE it! Thanks Rachel!!
My sewing is going to be a bit limited this week because we're holding our annual fundraiser garage sale this weekend and I have quite a bit of work to do in order to get ready. I'm sure I can sneak a few minutes though. Afterall, sewing/quilting relaxes me!
Check out what other quilters have on their design wall today by going to Judy L's Patchwork Times. Who knows, you might just get inspired!
