a change of direction










Using the stash has been my driving force this year, and now that I have organised it into colour groups it has certainly been easier to find things. And what I love about some quilts is that real sense of making do & apparent random use of fabric. Clare over here @  http://selfsewn.blogspot.co.nz/  does this really well. But I don't always find it so easy! Take my current project, Diagonal Madness. I have to say it wasn't going so well working with the minty fabrics and so, after some considerable time starring at the design wall, I had a change of direction! This is my third attempt and it feels like things are finally geling a bit better now. Hope you have enjoyed reading about my indecisions & seeing just how I strayed away from my initial thinking on this! It's been fun!
Linking up with WiP Wednesday
and Design Wall Monday

a bit more #19
And then little Olive & I got very busy this week with the "rejected" squares!
She was on layout this time & I was on sewing.
We made little quilts, one for Pooh Bear, one for Ruby-Red-Shoes
and one for Rainbow Bright Dolly too!

  2. Sometimes things have to simmer a bit before they finally gel. This one is coming together nicely. Love the use of color.
