On a bright, lovely afternoon the stitching started badly.
For some reason a birds nest built up on the back of a quilt as I stitched. Wow. Evicted that bit of nonsense forthwith, started stitching again. Not five minutes later I stitched a big pleat right into the front. Well. That little quilt is now in the naughty quilt corner thinking about her actions and waiting for a visit from the un-stitch-me fairy. Little snot.
When the un-stitch-me fairy visits, the naughty quilt corner, pfft. Since this one is temporarily banished I had to start something else because I was just jonesing to stitch.
I started working on this and but again, not right. I think the un-stitch-me fairy needs to visit this or I need to thin a bit more. After a quick trip to get a wee nip to drink. Iced-tea I want to get iced-tea. The Cherrywood chartreuse jumped off the shelf and onto the ironing board. A good spritz, and press later I was nearly ready to begin again.
The five inch square ruler and SewLine pencil in hand I started drawing squares
Once the bones were stitched in the needle landed near a corner so the next logical step, stitch a line connecting the corners.
The corners look a little something like this. The next color will oooooo
will be in the red-violet/fuchsia range. Where and what will be determined when quilting resumes. While this would make a great impractical color wheel, I think doing a little something else, with a slightly different focus will draw this quilter further along the impractical color wheel with a lot of delight.

naughty quilt!!! lol, I have a few of those in the corner myself.
I am all too familiar with the quilting gremlins. They live in the quilts to frustrate and make far a bad day…..deepest sympathies!
