I was inspired a few month's back by a quilt that was designed by Kimberly Einmo, called Flight Plan. I found the pattern in American Patchwork & Quilting (December 2013).
I think it was March when I set to work cutting strips from my batik stash...
Solid White was a pretty quick decision (for once), and I dove right in. The blocks were created,
And lookin' so fine hangin' on the Design Wall...
But there the blocks lingered,
taking up space,
for far too long..
Why do I have to read the whole menu before ordering?
Really. I had a plan.
It was already In-flight.
But I just had to play..
hmm, how would it look ...
This phase I have coined D.W.I.
(perhaps Michele would like to add this to her ongoing list of acronyms)
The Flight was officially delayed.
Yep, stalled by 'Design Wall Indecision' (Not at all uncommon around here),
April flew by, and May rolled in..
Finally Donna stopped over for a visit
(A Snowbird headin' Northbound!)
And I gave her the gavel!
It was a pretty long
hanglayover, and it is her quilt after all!
Flight Plan was officially re-routed, and a new destination planned.
Determined to clear my design wall, I set My June AYOLF goal to complete Donna's quilt sandwich.
And a Star was Born!
Basting was completed early this morning. (check check!)My design wall has new space :-)
Projects tend to get stuck on that darn wall, beckoning me to make decisions. It seems I am even more indecisive when it comes to choosing quilting patterns. Now I am debating between swirls and on-point echoing for the background. Actually I really don't know yet about the stars either. Oh, the decisions..hmmm...
Just for you Donna, here's a teaser-peek of the back..
Yep, your favorite;-)
