|My Scrappy Blue Quilt is ready for quilting!|
And what to my wondering eyes did appear, but an excellent variety of blues. I had pastel blues, aquamarines, azures, cobalts, sky blues, peacock blues, teal blues, and even some greens began sneaking into the party! I didn't even realize I had so many blues to choose from since blue is far from being my Go To Color!
I started out with this:
And ended up with this!
I think, however, that I made an error in the block placement. I have zigzags running kitty corner from bottom to top, but a lot of their paths got messed up and ran into dead ends.
I even turned my cell phone pic into a black and white, so I could 'see' if there were any really bad arrangements of the blocks, or if the zigzag path went where I wanted it to. At one point in laying out the completed blocks, I got so frustrated with it, that I just decided to sew it together the way I had it and call it good. I'm not even certain if I did lay them out better, if they would even play out with the vision I had in my head. Pulling out a piece of graph paper and taking a little time to sketch my 'vision' most decidedly would have helped. But I wanted to see the finished quilt! Oh, yes, I am a woman of little patience, lol!
Getting this quilt top together satisfied my OMG goal for January, and I will get it quilted up and bound for my February OMG goal. I have other projects in the works, too. And I'm looking forward to getting them finished as well!
Quilting with a smile,
