|Skinny Minny Jeli Quilts|
I picked six of the darker shades of my Heavy Metal fabric (Windham Studios) for the geese, grabbed some Kona Ivory and Bone scraps, and a fat quarter of Cotton + Steel. Mixing it up!
The spots on the Heavy Metal are...of course metallic. Bronze, gold and silver. Notice I didn't go with rainbow colors?! While they maybe the obvious choice, I knew I needed to go in a different direction. For this time.
There isn't much rhyme or reason with the background. I'm trying to not over think it and just do! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
I've come to the conclusion that if something doesn't work, its okay. All isn't lost, the world won't crumble, fabric is just fabric. A lesson learned from a fail or trying something new is just as valuable.
I have two 6 1/2" blocks completely finished and two partially finished. The little skinny geese are just over 2" long and 1/2" tall. Totally skinny!
I think I'll get the four blocks finished and decided on a layout. It doesn't have to be a circle, but I do like that. There have been a few ideas brewing in my head, which I keep tamping down! Now is not the time to decide...but what if?! You know the routine!
I've had this project on my 'to do' list for far too long! It's always a good feeling when you can cross it off and hopefully move on to yet another...or make room for one more! The good old vicious cycle never ends!
Do you get bewildered when a project doesn't go as planned? Or can you be a duck and let it roll of your back? Mostly I'm a duck...quack quack!
