I'm frustrated. This quilt top is unloved. It's not a good combination.
Tell me. Why when I love all the blocks, and love the idea, and love the fabric... why don't I love this quilt top? Maybe it's the orange. Orange and I are not friends. I tried but keep getting rebuffed. I think orange is jealous of pink in my stash. So much pink, so little orange.
It all started out so well this morning. Things looked like this:
Full of hope! Full of promise! Full of quilty goodness! But after sewing all morning (while watching Anonymous - love watching movies while I sew), I'm feeling blah about it. Why is that, quilty friends?
I think I need to add a white border around the quilt. It's a lap quilt around 36"x 40" now I don't mind making it a bit bigger. Plus I think I need a gap before adding the binding.
This fan print will be the binding.
Anyways blabbing on as per usual. Really, this whole post is a cry for help. Help me love my quilt top again! Ideas and suggestions are always welcome. For the time being I have folded it and put it away while I think on it some more. Maybe I'll go start a new project and try to make friends with orange.
