It's not really necessary to name every quilt but it does make it easier to attach a name otherwise I'll end up referring to this latest effort as that dark floral thingy with the bits of orange.
So I have still been trying to clean up some UFOs and use up some of the fabric I have while resisting the temptation to buy more. But at times I get easily distracted and concentrate on other interests so I haven't blogged for a while.
Often quilts never look quite like you envisioned them. Most times when I look at this quilt top I see the strong-coloured blocks, but the next time the cream colour dominates. The first time this happened to me I was amazed that my first thought was for the 21st Century Garden at the entrance of the Geelong Botanic Gardens, a modern arrangement I couldn't bear to live with. It includes some metal sculptures which represent trees. Can you see the resemblance ?
Winter officially starts the day after tomorrow so it's likely that I'll spend more time on P and Q over the next few months.
