A look back: Sitting on my self was a stack of previously cut black/white rectangles. I was looking for what I thought would be a quick project to get my creativity jelling after quite a long layoff as I was playing nurse maid to 'the husband'. Now nearly 8 weeks post surgery, I'm almost ready to declare he's on his own! Wishful thinking but perhaps after another 8 weeks I can say that out loud.
So....after some fast piecing, well never fast for me (patchwork is not my favorite construction technique). I ended up with the piece above. It didn't take me long to realize the design was awkward. What to do?? Well, I whacked off several inches from the top, hummm....still not right. So I whacked off another couple of inches. Hummm, hummmm......oh well.....next I cut off a bigger hunk from the bottom. Now I had 3 leftover sections.
Which yielded two wall quilts from one poorly designed one.
AND THEN THERE WAS COLOR
20" X 24.5"
TWO RED LINES
19.5" X 16.5"
