This quilt is another story.
I have been feeling guilty about not finishing it sooner. But I got the message I had needing to hear today.
This quilt comes along in its own sweet time.
I first posted about it here...and how Carole was teaching me.
I did a bit more fabric cutting here.
And today I got a bit of time to begin piecing the squares together. Now I have nice long strips that need to get sewn together...finally.
It is coming together.
This quilt just has its own timing.
I just couldn't make the bright blue work for me.
The white fabric with the little yellow flowers on it was a duvet cover that I picked up a few weeks back. A thrift find from our newly opened Goodwill store. I think it lightens the whole thing up and I am liking it. I think I'll use the rest for the backing.
I pick favorite "spots" on the quilt as it comes together. Thinking that if this quilt were going to be mine, I would fold it so this "spot" showed. My new favorite "spot" is the one shown in the top photo. I just love it.
Pieces coming together little by little.
I would love to say that it will be finished and ready to quilt by tomorrow.
But most likely it won't.
It will sit right where it is until the time is right...or company comes and needs the bed.
So much like my life these days.
Little pieces picked up here and there...a little vintage a little new. Lessons learned along the way. Waiting for the right timing. Getting up the courage to dig in again. Not feeling guilty.
I am so happy to have a friends along for the ride.
