'Cause I'm Wishy-Washy
After several unsuccessful attempts at Bonnie Hunter's annual mysteries, I swore I'd NEVER do another one.
But, then, I saw the colors for this year and thought, "that's right in my wheelhouse."
I even went to the trouble of checking my stash but couldn't find anything that really excited me so, relieved, I reaffirmed my affirmation -- Never Again!
UNTIL ... Jo Kramer at Jo's Country Junction mentioned that she was going to use batiks this year. Hmm, that reminded me that several years ago I had accumulated a collection of brown and turquoise batiks for a quilt that I started as a class sample.
Named for our neighborhood lake that I've only been to once in my life,
with an old church camp flame,
whom I called by another boyfriend's name,
and whom I never saw again.
I love your story about the lake! And your nine patches look so pretty.ReplyDelete
There's no downside to having a stack of nine-patches... 8)ReplyDelete
Especially a stack of pretty ones!
Never say never! Have fun with it. Love the boyfriend story!ReplyDelete
Great fabrics! This is going to be fun!!!ReplyDelete
LOL! I can imagine you and me as 10-year-olds on the lake shore, trying to keep ourselves from slipping into the water, giggling like crazy. And we both fell in.ReplyDelete
I also love the colors. I have looked at sunsets for years thinking about making a quilt in those colors. I haven't started anything yet...I have been trying to finish some Christmas gifts and still sort through and rearrange some rooms. Mine will probably be just four fabrics - definitely no string piecing though. Sharon B in FranklinReplyDelete
Batiks are just so luminous, this is going to be gorgeous!ReplyDelete
