I loved finding out about all the other English geeks like me. It's nice to know I'm not alone!
I've joined one of the do.Good stitches bees. We're doing word blocks this month, and I'm figuring things out. It's low volume, which is the anti-thesis of me, but I just might find something that will work. The words I've chosen are "comfort" and "silver lining" - these quilts are going to a women's shelter, and I thought those words would be good fits. I'm pulling fabrics and will get started this week on those. Would a light aqua be okay? I've got some gray and some light yellow, but I'm really struggling with this one!
Okay, so the actual list:
- pull fabrics for do.good stitches bee blocks - print off letters!
- trim the HST blocks for my Hello Sunshine Jacob's Ladder - there are a lot of these! Thank goodness for old episodes of Downton Abbey
- cut the fabric for my Flirt Briar Rose quilt
- start cutting strips for that quilt I'm trying to avoid
Now here's another thought for you: I'm already planning our family pictures this summer (my cousin is a photographer). I want to use a quilt in them. I've seen so very many cute pictures of families on quilts, kids wrapped in quilts, couples wrapped in quilts, that I must use one in my photo shoot.
Here's where I start to over-think things. Which quilt do I choose? And do I coordinate our outfits with the quilt? I know. I'm a dork. I don't want us to clash with it, but I don't want us to blend in either. Decisions, decisions!
Here are the two quilts I'm trying to decide between:
I know, two triangle quilts. But I need one that's big enough. I'm leaning towards the Lucy's Crab Shack quilt, but not enough to start shopping for clothes. And I'm getting some Glamping fabric soon, so I might just go with that quilt. But who knows!
Thoughts? And yes, you can tell me I'm a total dork. I can handle it.
