I started it off with a jelly roll of Carolyn Friedlander fabric and decided to make a granny square with navy sashing. There's nothing wrong with the project, the fabric, the construction, the quilting, nothing at all. (Well, there are imperfections, but there always are!) But I'm having a hard time liking it.
I think it's because it's November, and that means short days with little sunshine. I think the navy, while classy, absorbs too much light for this time of year. Maybe had I finished it in July, I would have a different feeling. After my crankiness about variegated thread in my last post, I tried it again, but this time used a spool from Connecting Threads. I am pleasantly surprised by how good, and reasonable these threads are. And no, I'm not being paid to mention them!
I also put together my "stars" from my month as bee queen. They were all made with such happy fabrics, but I'm pondering whether it needs another row at the bottom. It makes a decent lap size quilt as it is, and is still missing the outer sashing.
I have a little girl in mind to receive this, so I won't be dawdling too long to finish it!
I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network and Sew Fresh Quilts, so pop over and have a visit.
