I put away the shed and jacaranda tree quilt for now. I worked and worked, but I wasn't happy with its progress, so I took Bruce's good advice and put it away. Too much of what I was doing was forced. Where is that deep inspiration that spurs me to work on a project night and day until it is done?
One of the things I think is holding me back is the specter of the agapanthus quilt. I haven't worked on it since October, yet the fabrics are still piled up on my work surface. I would have finished it for the Viewpoints show, but I want it for major quilt shows, so I am waffling. I need to get back to work on that quilt!
So, here is attempt #2 - Bamboo Forest, Hana:
I'm auditioning the blues at the bottom for a possible stream/waterfall. I don't yet know how I want to interpret some leaves. I may stamp them in some way. I think I'm happy with the progress. I plan to work on it more tomorrow night.
