I make quilts for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes for a special occasion- a wedding, a baby, Christmas. Sometimes because someone has just plain asked me to. Sometimes (every once in a great while) because someone is paying me to. Sometimes, though, I make a quilt just to get it out of my head. I'll spend days or weeks thinking (ok, obsessing) about a quilt before I finally just have to break down and make it.
Well, late Saturday I finished my 118 blocks.
They make a rather impressive stack. It was too late to head to the fabric store for the white fabric I need to turn them into a quilt top. What's an obsessive quilter to do until I have the opportunity to go the craft store without the kids? Start on the quilt that I've been obsessing about, of course.
The colors are off in these pictures and nothing I did seemed to help. That's not actually a black and white polka dot. It's grey and white. In general everything's lighter than it appears here. But, taking that into account, what do you think? I'm really not sold on the green. Part of me wishes I had just made it pinks and greys. I was going for the quilted version of this blanket-
Isn't it fun when you are your own inspiration? Anyway, I'd love your input. Leave it as is? Rip out the green squares? Rip out the grey squares?
