I never dreamed you all cared so much. It's that, or you are finding new and exciting ways to avoid housework. Which I am totally in favor of helping you do.
So after careful weighing of your opinions of my fabric choices, I am happy to announce that one of these pieces of sage advice was the tipping point:
So which was it:
A. You should go with the fabrics that you love because you may never finish the quilt if you're using fabrics you don't love.
B. I would choose the first one, because sometimes you are surprised when you use fabrics you don't like so much.
|And answer B it is!|
Also, I took into account that I would only need background fabric, so that made the answer even more obvious. Today I found a lovely blue with small brown polka dots that will look so modern Christmas throw it is scary. I only wish the fabric photographed a little better.
|This so doesn't look like the pretty aqua it really is.|
I also enjoyed the advice of Jennifer, who wisely pointed out, "If you don't love the finished quilt, it's a great gift." Or raffle quilt item.
But don't get too excited VBES PTO. I kind of think I am going to love it when it is done, and Greta will probably be long out of that school by then anyway, given my track record for finishing projects for ME.
