25 Apr Design Frenzy
How did it get to be so long since I’ve blogged?! I’ve been in a bit of a designing frenzy lately. Every time I sit down to sew, I seem to get an idea that I need to jot down before I forget it. Two hours later, I’ve got the basics of a new quilt design, no sewing done and need to go make dinner or pick up my daughter or….
I love designing new quilts – I get in the “puzzle-solving” zone and have a hard time stopping til I get it worked out. How big should it be? Should I make it block based or not? What size are the pieces? How much fabric would I need? Can I make it bigger or smaller and still have a good design? What colors am I thinking of? How does it look if I change the darks and lights? And on and on.
As much as I love designing, sometimes I think I’m wasting my valuable sewing time. After all, I already have more quilts designed than I have time to make! But, it’s just too much fun.
I’ll try to get some sewing done soon so I have something to show you 🙂
