Unfinished project number 1
Okay as promised, I am blogging about each of my unfinished projects as they are finished. Here is project #1 ...
This quilt is probably at least 7 years old. It was a class by my favorite teacher, Donna Yackey. Friendship stars and windmill blocks ... I used fabric that people had given me and was outside of my fabric comfort zone. I didn't have enough of the blue border fabric to finish the borders, so I was stuck. Then I couldn't figure out an outside border, so I put it all away in a box. That many years ago I was still a pretty new quilter and not comfortable at all messing with color. Now I realize that "finished" is better than perfect, and that there isn't one "perfect" color selection ... Meaning stop being so rigid ... Try different combinations and see what I think looks best ... I'm the only one that has to love it.
