It's really hilarious how this quilt design has morphed into something totally different from where I started. It was planned to be a very symmetrical design, all perfect and even and geometric.
BUT the design is now very wonky, freeform, and anything but symmetric, even, or perfect. And I LOVE IT! And it has a word on it! Fun and happy!
I'm learning it is good to be open minded and let the creativity flow - it sometimes takes you to places you would have never found otherwise. Don't get stuck in a rut! Play the "What If" card constantly! You'll be amazed at what happens...
I have all the parts and pieces basted in place, ready to appliqué. I'd planned on working on it at the double header baseball game today, but it's a bit too cold outside for me. Hubby went on (bundled up like crazy). But not me. I'm sitting in the warm house, with the warm doggies in my lap, and a warm quilting covering all. And I stitch.... :)
So, how many basket blocks were stacked up in my last post? 53!!!! I need to make many more before I'm done though. I never guessed I had that many made already!
