I admit that I like order in my life and that I'm a little OCD (excuse me while I wait a moment for those who know me well to stop laughing hysterically in a corner). Yes, I like all of my spices to be in the same type of glass jars, for my socks and shirts to be folded a specific way, and to have the canned goods lining up all nice and pretty. When things get chaotic, it causes me stress. When I get stressed, I want to organize things. Just ask my husband - when he sees me pulling everything out of the pantry to reorganize, he knows that something's up.
Well, my triangle quilt is causing me stress. Not enough for me to start pulling out the boxes of cereal but enough to make me stop sewing. With this quilt I've definitely learned that I'm just not a scrappy kind of girl. With 22 different fabrics in one quilt it's just too much chaos for me. I just wasn't sure what to do to fix the issue and tame down the chaos. Then I saw this Blogger's Quilt Festival entry by Beth from Plum and June. Anding some solid strips in between the rows of triangles - I think that could help restore some order to my quilt! You just never know where inspiration will strike. Since I already have a stack of 2 rows already sewn together I think I'll do 2 rows of triangles with a row of solid white in between. That way I can still show off the perfect points I've already sewn AND give my quilt a new makeover, one that will feel more structured to me. Who knows, maybe I have a modern flair in me after all!
