While at the FQ Retreat (oh so long ago it seems) I did Katy Jone's EPP Triangles tabletop session. I can't say I got a lot done. Other than giving my laughing ability a good workout. It was a fabulous class, with a very funny bunch of women who said it like it is, and then some.
The gist of this converasation I am having with you here is that I got about half of one sixth of the block made in the duratoin of the class. Then in my most recent bloggy computerless void I decided to get on with finishing it.
I rather lost faith in my fabirc choices as I sewed. I wondered how I came up with such an odd assortment. But then I finished it.
And I really, really like it. Especially if I squint at it. I'm odd like that Now I want to turn this into a cushion, but am at a loss of what the background should be. I've placed it upon Kona charcoal, Kona ash and black Essex linen. I am not sure if any of them are right, though I am veering towards the black linen and thinking close straight line quilting in a variegated yellow.
But that somehow doesn't work in my brain either. Am I completely wrong? Should I look at a purple or orange background? Should this be a hand stitching project - in which case it will have to get in line as I have a backlog of hand quilting to do?
What would you do, if it were you?
