Thank you so much again for all your comments about that baby quilt...you know, the one for my sister in law whose baby girl is due next month? Whether it was to change it up a little, abandon ship or persevere, they were all appreciated.
In the end I decided to persevere. I can't explain it but I didn't want this baby quilt to beat me which is weird as I'm the least competetive person you will find...or so I like to think.
So I went more scrappy, added in more of the green (not grey as I previously thought) fabrics and made it much more random. I passed it by Susan and she suggested I have the red HSTs meeting up as pinwheels so that the eye had somewhere to 'rest'. I liked that idea and that got me playing and thinking and using more of the solids to meet up but not as pinwheels but as squares - kind of stepping stones through the cabbages and roses if you like.
So that's where I'm at. It's a beautiful warm and bright sunny day here. I'm so much happier with the quilt top, which is good considering my husband was on the 'phone to his sister last night and told her I was making something for the baby. No pressure there then.
Linking up for the first time in ages with Lee at WIP Wednesday.
