I like big, bold and chunky as well as the next guy.
And no, I'm not talking about my closet!
I have been on the new designer and all of her/his gorgeous -art work- bandwagon for a few years now. I love seeing what they come up with in their colors and prints.
Who would want to cut up all those gorgeous damasks and paisleys the size of small countries?? Not me.
That's why these materials lend themselves to quick and easy quilts. I just want to see large pieces of this draped all over my body.
Don't visualize that. It's lunchtime.
I'm an all or nothing gal usually. I thought I had turned a corner.....taken a leap......jumped in head first.....never to return again to the small dainty print.
I was wrong.
I have reconnected with my first love and I still love her.
I finished all the applique on this lovely Serendipity Sampler and I'm hooked all over again.
I loved every meticulous moment.
I loved opening up these bags and digging through all the small prints
to finish off leaves and berries. There's nothing Kimmie loves more than dozens of leaves and berries. Why have 6 berries when you could have 60??!!
I think I'll whip her up a t-shirt with that on it.
I'm actually sad that the applique part is over.
Just need an inner border and then a pieced border and then a few more posts on how much I love my new quilt and then some more pictures of me and my quilt before I machine quilt it and then some 'after' photos and then a video and then I'll send it to 31 friends hoping for more praise and glory in my accomplishment.
