|We've got snow! Nothing to do with sewing but it's so pretty!|
|And it wouldn't be Milo's Cave without occasional pictures of Milo.|
I'm surprised that I don't have dozens of blog posts with that title, it seems to be the story of my life. After looking at all those Fresh Modern Ideas, I thought I had a direction. Then as I was just randomly flipping through the most recent QA Magazine my eye fell on a reverse-applique tutorial by Beryl Taylor. It includes the full-size view of the piece which is shown as a "teaser" on the cover of this DVD. I'm "quite enamored" of it. And this made me wonder why I was focused on a bed quilt rather than a wall hanging.
But now I'm waffling back the other way. For one thing, to meet the challenge, I have to use at least 90% of the two yards I was given. And would stacking them up in pile, then cutting through some and not all really count as "using?" Might the giver think I "wasted" beautiful fabrics? Might I think so? (Yeah, a little).
The other point is that the wall hanging at least in the illustration uses bright solid or finely patterned pieces. These big bright prints would get lost.
So there. I talked myself out of at least that wall hanging. Not to say I won't find another option given a couple more hours to fiddle. But I have work to do today. And none of it involves fabric. :(
