the night after a quilt guild meeting is always the most productive time for me. i'm so full of energy and good feelings from all the wonderful projects i've seen the night before. i get a lot done and i really enjoy the process of making.
at our next meeting, we will be revealing our solids challenge quilts! i had such a hard time figuring out what i wanted to do. i was really certain that i would end up making something i wouldn't like and would end up giving away or never using. i was feeling very discouraged and frustrated. and then all of a sudden it came together, if out of nowhere! i was messing around in photoshop, which is where i like to do very rough mock-ups of quilt blocks and came up with this:
and i really like it! i've messed around with the color order and number of chevrons a bit, but i think it's really going to work out and end up being something i like a lot! in fact, i think this is going to be the new throw for our couch. it's been a lot of fun to make, even if dealing with half-square triangles is not something high on my list of favorites. i'd take a circle over a hst any day!
