I won't say that my tendency to think-think-think a project is the only thing that completely blocked me from moving forward with the fairy tale tea towel, but it was definitely a factor ... and since I am being completely honest, I find that I am still (over) thinking about the challenges of working with that one.
The mantra seems to be working for me and, at last, I have some Tea Towel Challenge progress of my own to share.
I do hope that Céline believes that imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery. I loved her Maisy quilt and immediately saw design possibilities in it. Over on the Block Lotto blog, I suggested using large floral prints with the green Star Chain blocks we're making in a similar design, and when I started thinking about what to do with my pair of coordinating hot-air-balloon tea towels, I was clearly still thinking about the Maisy quilt.
Now, I find myself in that place that Laurina blogged about a couple weeks ago and I, too, am asking myself, is it done yet?
I may have fallen into old habits and be overthinking the answer to that question a little too much. Some considerations are that since itt has turned into a bigger quilt than I imagined–it now measures 56 by 68 inches–maybe I should go for it and make it large enough for a bed? One practical challenge to making it any larger is that I have all but used up the white-on-white fabric and since I bought the last of the bolt, I won't be able to find/buy more.
I'd love to know what you think: Is it done? Does it need more and if so, what?
