Do you ever get ideas, and they ferment there in your brain, churning away, insisting on getting out? I've had an idea in my mind when I saw a quilt somewhere (can't for the life of me remember where) and I saw a pattern in it that was completely different than what the other quilter had made. This idea has been festering away, overshadowing the WIPs I should be working on. So I gave in. I was tempted to make a bigger quilt with this idea, but decided to try it out in miniature first.
Yesterday I cut 82 2.5" squares and 3 orange ones. Then I worked on my layout.
Today I tweaked the layout and then pieced my squares, with just a tiny bit more orange added in.
I was rather pleased with my three little fishes in the deep blue sea, until Emily guessed that they were birds, and then I was less certain that I had achieved my aim. Regardless, I am going to find a scrap of wadding and turn this into a mini quilt. Now quilting ideas are knocking about my brain instead. Best to get it over with so I can return to the jobs I should be doing.
