Here I am. With all my Confetti pieced, pressed and crisp as big green apple...I'm wondering what my next step will be.
Today, I toyed around with a paper pieced rainbow star. I was thinking it would tie in with the blocks and since I'm using bits of Alison Glass 'Artifact', it mimics the rainbow compass. Too much? Too rainbow? It isn't like there isn't enough color already, but we must play and try and test and tweak and change!
Perhaps if the front of the quilt was black & white the rainbow star would make more sense. GAH! Ever had one of those moments where an idea all of the sudden veers off to an entirely different direction? Darn you star!!
Weather or not I use this star in my Confetti quilt, I really rather love it! It's a little 4" hunk of love in my mind!
Why does the back have to be so interesting? Paper piecing is so amazing, I'm not sure I can get enough of it!
My first test block will end up being a pillow cover. (yes, again!) It also ended up being a test for another sashing idea for the quilt. I can picture color in the sashing, I'm just can't nail it down in my mind.
I have found it helps with my process if I write about it and of course, take pictures. While I want to go full force and finish it up, I also need to step back and breathe. Take a break. There is that pesky word 'perspective'. That I am in need of right now!
Do you ever feel like you are trying too hard on a design? If you get to that point what do you do about it?
