WIP Wednesday – Doin’ a Solid

There’s quite a bit of backstory about the inspiration for this new quilt project. So much so, that I’m still flushing it all out through my brain. It began with a new and surprising benefactor, continued with feelings of indecision and unoriginality, and is (so far) concluding with a double rainbow I saw through grey storm clouds. 

I will endeavour to detail more of its origins as I proceed. I find I really need to listen to the fabric to find out what it wants to say, and ultimately “be” to me. For now though, I’m enjoying this really simple sewing, and engaging colour play. This is my first all solids quilt, and it already feels like I’m in a new, swanky martini lounge that I’d like to hang out in for a while!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!

    Love it and am looking forward to see more of this. Seeing lilac and teal together is giving me feelings I didn't expect, I mean, ideas, geiving me ideas. 😉

    It's noice, it's dufferent, it's unuooshual…. Can't wait to see the final peice because like most things you do, it is the finished article that sings the loudest…

    I am loving where this is going. The simple squares with all of those great fabric combinations will look wonderful in a quilt.
