Pulling these fabrics was a lot of work. They are for the Supernova Quilt Along. I am a little behind but seeing as I just joined this week, I am cutting my self some slack. And doing a tremendous amount of cutting. All this fabric.
I have been thinking about choices lately. Pulling a gazillion fabrics and trying to make them fit together gives one a little time to ponder. But just a little time. Because I don't have much time these days. You see, it is Spring Break at our house. That means children 24/7. Which is awesome ...
But also a lot of work.
We have played marble games, painted huge canvases, baked birthday cakes for neighbours and brownies for ourselves. We have played in the sunshine, played Angry Birds on my new Iphone, read chapters of Harry Potter and lost mail keys on bike rides (we found them). All in the last 3 days.
Leaving my job last summer and working from home has been amazing. It took a lot of adjusting but I would not trade it for anything. I think it was easier going to work 4 days a week than my present gig of working at home, full time caregiver, all the time grocery shopper, supreme dog walker and all round fun time gal. Choices, right?
You'll have to give me your opinion on my fabric choices. There are 9 supernovas in the quilt and I have chosen 7 fabrics for each supernova. I have tried to keep my colour choices to just a few, tried to use some of the same fabrics throughout, one print in different colours throughout (Henna something or another) ...
I am not sure that it all works but it is my plan for now. I'll let you know how it goes.
