But! I have been reinspired, and here is why: I finally finished a huge project! Allow me to introduce the Tetris Quilt:
|The Tetris Quilt. It took forever.|
|pretty cool, right? ThinkGeek is an awesome website, by the way.|
|just a handful of squares here|
|Ignore all that cat hair, and focus on the quilting!|
And to make it all super interesting, I would continue the straight-line grid around the outer border, sans quilted squares as a guide, which required lots and lots of measuring and marking.
|that's a lot of quilting, I tell you!|
And I kind of really love it. I don't think I'm quite ready to let it live on my couch yet, given its high percentage of black (cat-hair-and-stray-fuzz-attracting) fabric, but eventually it may do so. I'm also thinking I might enter it into a very minor local quilt show this summer. And in the meantime, I'm ready to start something new, and maybe finish up one or two of those other long dormant projects...
|Of course they love it.|
