Thinking And Not Doing

I did not have a productive week. On the upside, I did not buy fabric.
I looked over some purse patterns for my art quilt group’s pocket challenge. I chose thread to quilt Retro Charm, but didn’t have enough for the whole quilt. Two stores later I have quilting thread.
I also auditioned quilting designs. I’m good on the sashing but don’t like what I have for the blocks.

It bothers me. Not sure why. It just does.
I have retreat next weekend. Thought about what to take to that. I’ll have to leave half way through because of obligations that came up well after I signed up to go. It definitely dampened my enthusiasm. I don’t want to pack up any more than I have to for one day.

    Possibly your block design is too busy for the fabrics? Or conflicts with the pattern in some of the prints? That layer of design just eludes me, so I always rely on my LAQ to make those decisions!

    I am no help with quilting designs, though I do really like the fabrics you used in your quilt.

    I’m like Dee Dee, no help with quilting designs, but I really like the fabrics you used.

    I like the design but try turning the sharp points of your design into flowing curves and see how that looks. You have a lot of hard lines with your piecing already. Too much competition. Just my opinion you realize.
