I’ve been in a bit of sewing funk lately, or maybe I should say, a non-sewing funk lately. I go through these from time to time, and they don’t usually last long. I hope this one’s wrapping up soon though; my machine might start to feel neglected.
In an effort to break out of the funk, I sewed when I didn’t feel like sewing. I don’t like it when I don’t feel like sewing; it seems very unnatural a state to be in. I finished up the last 9 herringbone blocks that I needed to get the top finished. I went with blue on the top and bottom, so I actually have one extra orange/red block that will probably get used on the back.
I tried a new picture spot, since there was snow outside and I had no tall person available to hold the top up for me. I really love how the top looks like stained glass hanging in the window like this. So pretty.
The idea for doing a gradated colour was something I picked up on Anne’s post when the QAL started. For the colour scheme, I was inspired by a photo that I found on my computer’s hard drive. I uploaded it into Anne’s palette builder, a totally amazing and awesome tool, and came up with the main colours that I ended up using, though I tweaked the papaya and cedar together and added a red.
Now this top will get added to the pile. The pile that I’m totally going to tackle soon. I hope.
