Do you ever get paralyzed about a project and find yourself unable to move on to another project? I feel that way about my Lily's Quilts QAL. I haven't made any progress from last week, when I posted about completing my 4 plates.
I forgot that I'd need a huge amount of fabric for the background because of waste from cutting the arcs. I had this idea that I'd only need half a yard or so. Ha!! Apparently I need 2 yards. So, it's got to be something that I have 2 yards of or can easily get 2 yards of, that means local. I'm not waiting another week or 2 for something to ship and arrive.
Here are my choices.
I can get more of the damask too, but it's such a definite directional print that I think it is problematic for the exteriors.
I could be working on MIL's quilt, but I'm just so hung up on this one, that I can't think of anything else.
MIL's quilt- most of top is done, blocks just need sewing together
MIL's 2nd quilt- I've got so much fabric I might as well do another one. I'm going to make a totally different pattern for the second one. I think I'll do a bookshelf quilt. MIL is an English teacher.
Rainbow Boston Commons- While my mother was here, she picked out a rainbow pack of precut batik strips. I volunteered to make her something. She insists that it be a Boston Commons. There's only enough fabric for a square pattern, not a rectangle. I think it sounds seriously boring, but that's what she wants. Oh and it's got to be in rainbow order. Sigh!
