I had to search back to see when I began this.....it was in July of last year. I started making the triangles and got side tracked. I returned to making triangles and got side tracked again. I began joining the units and got off onto another project. This photo is from November.....it finally made it to the flimsy stage.
I was unsure how it should be quilted, so it hung on a hanger for a couple of months. I debated on straight lines to accentuate the diagonal lines. I thought about some easy meandering since the fabric are mixed and strong in places. Then I thought it needed a border.....or not. I finally asked myself a couple of questions.....was I keeping or giving it away? ......did I want a soft or hard effect? I decided to keep it for a small lap quilt. I always want a small throw on my lap when I sit and read or watch TV. And a soft effect was an easy choice. Quilting motif is a pattern called swirly tails from Wendy Shepard's blog. It softly blends without being too dense.
A pale purple binding finished it off. I tried a scrappy mixed of colors/ all dark colors but found it distracting on this one. Since the color palette is blue, green, and purple I thought a softer tone worked the best.
And this Let's book It project is done!
I found a small project to play with for this month's Book It project. It's a nice mind distracting / doesn't have to be perfect project. When I have things tumbling around in my brain---life in general---I find that a simple project is best. So I will be playing with it for a day or two. Enjoy it all....happy stitching.
