I have quilts on the brain.
I don’t doubt that it has something to do with The Virtual Quilting Bee. I am excited to be working with these talented ladies. Excited, but so nervous. Really nervous. Just so you know.
I started a pile. My X string quilt pile. In colors that go in my guest room. You can’t see all the fabrics here – the pile is too big. Maybe I should edit it. Maybe not. I think it needs some darker greens. And maybe some mustard-y yellows. I’m wrapping my brain around it all, figuring how I can make it so it will look like a stash quilt (which it is, by the way) without being too entirely random. Does that make sense? Random looking, but actually very well thought out is the goal. I wonder how I can do that without it taking entirely too much time.
There are practical issues, too. Like geometry and math. You know – calculating exactly how many x’s I will need to make the right size quilt.
Pass the calculator, please.
