Well, that was a couple of weeks!
At least half of those days spent thanking God for NyQuil!
There should be a short window of time one is able to get a cold.
Like from never to....never!
This is where I was before I got sick:
spending time looking at this and thinking, "There is way too much white here!"
So, pilfered through the stash and tried this on for a while.
Maybe this is what made me sick in the first place? Can you get sick from the "This is a dang ugly quilt top!" virus?
Totally did not like where this was going.
Off to the sewing table with the seam ripper (you can see I've made a start at the bottom, left of the picture).
I went to Quilt.com's Block of the Month looking for inspiration on other pieced borders and found
this happy little block called Fair and Square.
So, I tried one on for size!
Hey! I like this! It's a lot more true to my original vision of staying with four colors: yellow, green, orange and white without all the glaringly white...white.
I made a few more using scraps. Some of them had been hoarded forever, but if I don't use them, they just sit in a bucket....doing nobody any good!
And here I am. Literally. See my warm, fuzzy socked toes?
Sticking to my four colors. I love them!
All this blah, winter gray weather is making me sad.
Which is why I'm so happy to be able to link up to
for my sunshine, inspiration, encouragement fix!
Come on over and play!
