Who knows what I was searching for in my studio closet, because now my mind has gone off in an entirely new direction?
What came out of the closet with me was a box of squares all cut and ready to make colorwash quilt tops. Were you part of the quilting world in the 1990's when these were most popular?
I fell in love with the idea of blending fabrics when I saw my first colourwash quilt made by Deirdre Amsden. (This was several years before all the books came out so I was ready to purchase them when they hit the shelves.)
You can see I became obsessed with cutting squares and more squares,
until I had boxes full of them.
Yes, I did turn many of these squares into quilts but that only fed my enthusiasm for cutting more.
When the boxes were full, they went into bags.
So, today here I am with squares and more squares and even a colorwash quilt top tucked in the box.
What should I do?
Will I ever make another colorwash quilt? Will I even quilt the completed top?
Should I save the squares for future projects or do a massive spring fling and purge my studio?
