I pulled out my precious collection of Denyse Schmidt and text print fabrics, added Kona Sky, and decided to work on an Irish Chain quilt.
I cut, and stitched, and sorted,
and in no time at all I had this whole stack of 9 patch blocks needed for a lap sized quilt.
Are you thinking it's looking a little bit too traditional? That's what I was thinking, too. But, that's what I really love about it. I've wanted to make a traditional quilt using modern fabrics for quite a while now. And, I think this will be a perfect quilt for hand quilting, too.
So, to get back to my original dilemma of not feeling like working on my old wips, I must say this new strategy worked. By keeping my mind occupied with this new quilt for a few days (and taking all wips off my design wall so they are not staring at me) I now feel ready to tackle them once again.
And, first one on my list is this Bizzy Kid quilt top.
I'll be back soon to let you know how it all went. Have a happy day, friends. Svetlana
