Last year I started this project but was not enamored with its looks. Needing something to use as a l/e without a lot of prep work I pulled this one back out. Pretty soon I realized I needed to lay the darn thing out to be able to work on it at all.
I'm not all that pleased with it right now. I think it is too conflicted/busy. So I will be making a few of the quarter square triangles out of solid fabrics to see if that will calm it down just a bit. Photos are good to look at if you want to see if your colors are dispersed equally. Yikes! Way too much orange/peach in the left side. I'll wait until I throw some of the solids in to move colors around.
I've got several projects I need to finish before I leave on retreat next Thursday. It will be a busy few days until then. One thing I try to do but almost never succeed is get new PJs for retreat. I found these PJ's at Target and thought they would be perfect for a quilting retreat. Except, I like cotton for my pjs and these were Modal. For those who don't know about Modal (I didn't) it is a semi-synthetic fiber. I found them too warm and I hate tops that gap at the top. Sadly, I returned them. I guess, once again, I'll wear my old pjs.
I'm linking up with Show Off Saturday.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
