It has been a while since I have worked on a new quilt. With my limited ability to use the rotary cutter and iron, I am doing anything I can to keep my creativity going. In an effort to feel accomplished I pulled out another one of those old projects. The goal is to finish as many of those UFOs as possible. Even if it means that I end up with more quilt tops in future.
Almost a year ago I had started playing with the scraps of my Ferris Wheel quilt. I did not think it was ever going to turn into anything at all but I liked the way it looked after I sewed the background so I wanted more!
I am going to post some versions of this quilt. As the quilt evolved on the design wall, it started changing. I am not sure how it will end up in the end. I am enjoying the process and who knows where it might lead itself.
Wheel surrounded with bold patches of strips. I think they make the wheel stand out on it's own no matter how crazy it gets. Love those bold strips!
The wheel with patches made from smaller bits.
I am looking for a horizontal quilt to hang in my hallway. Trying to find a focal point that is off center and still balance the quilt. Not really difficult thing to do but after a while of staring at this craziness, I feel like I am going blind!
I like the little slivers of black along the edges. I am going to leave it alone for few more days on the design wall and see what happens next.
My scrap bin is almost empty which can be a good thing!
I am ready for some fresh new colors to work with and,
this 4'X6' quilt gives cleaning up the sewing room a new meaning!
Have a great day!
