Let’s hit my highlights yet again:
I really really can not draw — I think my 5-year-old does better drawings of things and people than I do.
And I really don’t know Canadian geography.
My husband said the left side looked like a sheep, but the rest was some other sort of blobby animal.
I think it’s good enough to get my idea across. I’ll cut it down a bit when I cut it out of fabric, but the Earth is coming together! The blue is already steam-a-seamed onto the quilt -YAY progress!
And as further evidence that I am DONE with dithering,
It is a crescent! I changed its fabric to a bit lighter gray. The fabric also has some shine to it — some silver metallic on parts. I loved the other mottled gray, but it was too close in color to the rocket and I wanted them to differ some more.
The Newest Conundrum: The Backing!
A good friend gave these 2 great rocket fabrics to the 1st taker.
Another good friend was the 1st taker, but the 1st taker so kindly gave them to me when I had this project in mind. I’m going to give back to her the unused fabric. But I don’t know which I want to use — the bright rockets?
or the Alexander Henry rockets?
Both work! I think it is the job now of the 1st taker to tell me which fabric she likes best and she can have it back. SO, 1st taker – I know you read this and you know who you are - which fabric do you like best???
I had some people over at the house this past weekend who came into my sewing room. After being all astonished at the huge stash of fabric and wondering exactly how crazy I am, they turned to look at my quilt on the wall — it looked just like it did in the pictures from my last blog post. The quilt seemed to me fairly self-explanatory, but apparently I was wrong. I had to explain and point out the moon, the earth, the rocket. And then I got big “OOOHHHHH, NOW I get it!” responses. Huh. It was a bit disheartening, but onward I go!
