Back and Forth

Just look at my quilting work over the past few months and surely you would put my picture in the dictionary beside the term "unfocused." I vacillate from project to project, consequently letting quick and easy projects drag on and on.

Case in point: I began sewing the blocks for Tapestry on Veterans' Day. I found myself needing to make more, so I just now got back to it this week. This is just crazy because these are the easiest blocks in the world to make. They also make nice big blocks, so I didn't need tons of them for a finish!

Now in my defense, knowing I needed to finish the t-shirt quilt for my brother took precedence, of course. Then those fun 9-patches were an easy go-to when I didn't want to hide myself away upstairs in the sewing room.

Back to Tapestry. Here are all the blocks laid out on the guest bed in a photo taken with my cellphone. (Why do they always look so fuzzy?) As I study this, I think I need to do some rearranging. See what you think.


My eye sees too much light and not enough dark. The upper left corner blocks have the darker look that I want. I need to make some selective rearrangingto see if I can get the look I want. Goodness, what if I have to go back to the LQS (local quilt shop) to buy more fabric?? *grin* I have no problem at all with making more blocks of darker fabric combinations. Decisions, decisions.

I can't really get busy on any of this until after I finish my semester grading. The deadline approaches. Once grading is off my radar, perhaps I will be able to focus more successfully.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

If making darker blocks means you have to make a trip to your LQS, then I say go for it!
