I had an all day sewing day a few weeks ago and I didn’t have anything to do. I mean I had LOADS to do but I am undisciplined and so I began a new thing.
Technically it’s not like I used more fabric – this stuff had been cut into 2” strips and it was easy to make the units.
It’s Bonnie Hunter’s Carolina Chain. Only one problem, I don’t like it. Not one bit!
I mean, I like the original quilt, of course I do otherwise I wouldn’t have started it. But my version is blehhhh.
I’m hopeful that it’s blehhhh because I’ve yet to add the bright stuff, that is at the bottom of the box. I’ve cut a whole quilt in advance which is a bit of a worry if I need to add some zing to it. Didn’t think of that till this quilt eventuated.
The one below is clearly in need of attention.
As is this one. Must have got too tired.
It’s blehhh, isn’t it? I think my neutrals are too neutral. I did have a plan to make it a murky quilt but it’s way past that I think.
I’m hopefully sewing tomorrow, so maybe I’ll be able to add some brights to it and that might perk it up a bit. We shall wait and see.
Have a lovely day!
