Well, I haven't gotten much sewing done so far. I have been rewatching the entire Gilmore Girls series with Hannah at night lately. Today my inlaws came over and spent the day and we had a nice relaxing day just sitting, chatting, playing badminton and of course...LOTS of eating! When everyone left, I finally got up into the sewing room. I started a new quilt top that I am not even sure what the name is. I saw it once and I am trying my best to make it like I remember it. Course, I am usually lucky if I can remember what my own name is. I love how the pattern is turning out, but I am not sure if I like one of the fabrics. I am making this mostly scrappy...the neutral backgrounds, the light rings and the dark rings are all scrap fabric. I wanted to have some constant in this, so I am using a darker blue and a pattern that has a lighter background but the same blue in the pattern ( I know it is hard to see that pattern in the pic). I thought if I made those areas scrappy, I would lose the rings. I like the darker blue, but I am not sure about the other one. What do you think? I really want to keep working on this, but don't want to make any more blocks until I decide. Oh..and can you see the pattern of the interlocking rings? The pattern that I am trying to recall was done in only 5 fabrics, so I am not sure scrapping this up is going to work. Any opinions welcomed!!
