Free Form Friday! Get to it!!!

Friday, May 10, 2013

I do believe I'm over thinking things.  I started the evening with a great plan.

1. Make dinner.
2. Get through a bit more of my Craftsy class(es).
3. Practice quilting on the new machine.

So I managed to get through 1 & 2 mostly without a hitch.  I do not like to watch too much of the class without some practice so it was time to move on to #3.  That's where the problem comes in.

What am I going to do?  What's my plan?  I don't want to just start quilting, do I? Ocean? Blocks? Vase? Feathers? FMQ sampler using some of Leah's designs?  So many choices!

I know!  I'll do a vase with flowers in it...NO...with feathers coming out of it.  Phew!  That wasn't too bad...let draw it up first.

I like this, but it's not what I want to do tonight.  I'll save it for another day.  Hmmmm...I really want to do an ocean floor scene.  Pebbles, kelp, fish...I should sketch it out.

Kelp Forest

Ooooooh!  I like this!  The scribbles will be an ocean currents filler design.  I've got the little anemone in the corner.  Hmmmmm...this looks more like work than practice.  Let's see, how much time do I have left for a new plan.

What!  It's 11:30!  It can't possibly be that late. Humpf!  I should really go to bed.  I have to be up really early tomorrow.  Great, lots of design done, but no actual quilting.

New plan:

1. Cut 1 yard of fabric into 6 1/2 inch squares.
2. Make quilt sandwiches from the squares.
3. Keep sandwiches by sewing machines and use them as small practice pieces.

I hope to execute the new plan sometime this weekend.

Quilt. Create. Enjoy!

  1. I think you did lots! Sometimes exploration/doodling is just what you need. I love the fish - you should totally do those sometime!

    1. Thanks Susan! Once I'd slept on it, I felt better about my progress. I think the fish are a lot of fun. I might just work on it next weekend.
