Procrastination: A Fine Art

Yesterday was a rainy, gloomy day. A perfect day to sew with these bright, colorful Lotta Jansdotter fabrics. I spent too much time looking over my Pinterest boards, trying to find a quilt I'd like to make. This always happens to me. Great fabric, can't find a block pattern I like. I want that sewing machine running! So I pushed the graph paper away, cut some fabric and started to sew.
Loved the first round. I want to use the solid range of turquoise fabrics, the black and white prints and all the colorful coordinates together…somehow.
I like the second round but this is just same ol' log cabin.
Four finished blocks. I like them, but not over the moon excited. I was thinking I would sash the blocks with plain white, trying for that Modern Quilt look.
Maybe set together with no sashing is better? Not really what I was after.
How about gray polka dot sashing? I think I like this a little bit. The good thing about all this procrastinating– and that is what I'm really doing, messing around with quilt blocks– is that I got an idea for art work I am supposed to be making. Maybe I should just get back to what I do. Thoroughly Modern Terry isn't working much for me.

  1. You are cracking me up..thoroughly modern terry! I see potential there. But can’t wait to see what this is leading to. Maybe just creative jump start.

  2. At least you finally cut into yours, I am still staring at mine!
