I've been working on a quilt. There was a time and place for this quilt. The time was about 5 years ago when I started it, and the place was on my son's bed when he was still young enough to like it.
I re-initiated work on this quilt because my suitcase of patchwork fabrics wouldn't close. That meant that I had to either finish or throw out the half-finished projects cluttering it up.
Well, I thought to myself, I should probably throw this quilt out because the crazy colours I chose are just too jarring. But then again, I thought, I could finish it and give it to a friend who has several little boys who just might like crazy colour schemes.
So anyway, I finished it. What's more, I really enjoyed finishing it! The colours don't seem crazy at all now.
Iris, who sent me the cool robot fabric that sparked the whole project.
I'm sure there is some kind of life lesson in that.
