The more I look at my tulip blocks for the Georgia Quilt, the more I really like it. And I think that my tastes are moving from traditional quilts to modern quilts. (I am even thinking I may like to learn to machine quilt instead of hand quilting).
This week I have been searching through my stash for some red. white, and blue material to make a quilt for the Thank You Quilters (thankyouquilters.org). Being from a military family, this is a cause that I want to support.
I noticed that alot of my stash is traditional patterned and what I describe as "country". So I found a pattern in a book from the library, "Fast Favorites from McCall's Quilting", which I thought would work with my stash. For a week I have been cutting squares while watching Hulu and this past weekend I got to work.
The blocks went together fast. But the more I worked on it, the more I really did not like it so much. I remembered something I read about falling out of love with a quilt and I guess that is what happened. Today, I put the rows together and it is looking better but I think it will end up being a lap quilt or throw.
