So this is where it ends, at least temporarily, with Free Spirit Medley.
I'm just not happy with my fabric selections for the center of this quilt. And with so much piecing yet to come with the borders, I don't think I want to risk that I might come around and like this sometime down the road.
I do think I've figured out where I went wrong. I'm not crazy about two of my blue choices, but I could live with them, it's the background, it's distracting and looks messy. I think I need to use one background, not a solid, but something with a little print to it.
I do like the light blue and red geese in the pinwheel blocks and the light brown and dark blue fabric colors for the stars.
It looks better in this picture than it does in real life.
I was working with fat quarters and a layer cake, but I really need some yardage of the simpler blue fabric pieces.
So while I regroup I thought I would work on my Spools project, have you heard, there's a Spool-Along Sew-Along going on!
I'ved decided to use some Bliss and some Marmalade for my spools.
I'm so excited several folks have decided to sew along with us, there are going to be some very interesting finishes with some of the creative fabric choices that are in the works.
