Playing with Fabric

You know how when you're new at something you feel a little overwhelmed when it comes to making decisions? It is just me or is it difficult sometimes to just get started on something? I'm a bit stuck on my present quilt and just could not decide what to do next. So I decided to get some fabric and cut it. Just get started. Is it going to be perfect? Probably not. But I have to get started somehow. So I ironed a few things and cut a few things. Maybe this weekend I'll sew some things together. Do I know where I'm going with this? Nope. That's ok!

This happened to me when I started knitting too and with each project it became easier to pick the next project and the yarn that would go with it. I expect that will happen with quilting too. I'm looking forward to it!

It is hard to get started! Sometimes, it's not until the whole quilt top comes together, or even until it's quilted, that I start to like a quilt. The love usually comes when the binding is on and it becomes a useful item. That's the cool part for me. I like your color scheme, especially that first floral!

Those fabrics are absolutely gorgeous and work brilliantly together. I will look forward to seeing what you do with them.

I know exactly what you mean about trying get started on something. The inspiration will come just when you least expect it and the outcome will be beautiful...of that I am certain.

Fabrics are very pretty.

You picked lovely fabrics Jackie!

I get tired of one project so I like to switch and play with something new :)

You have to find inspiration to sew, you can pick a fabric that inspires you or pick a pattern and then fabric.

Have fun with your new fabrics!

I also find it hard to get started. Spontaneity is an artistic quality that adds fun to any project. You are an inspiration.

What pretty fabrics, Jackie! I'm beginning to see you really like rose/mauve colorways! And sometimes the best projects come from an uncertain start!
