Old & New

I was digging around in my shelf of unfinished projects and pulled out this signature quilt that was given to me back in 2003 when I left my previous job.  The outside border of smaller coffee pots is a bit wavy and I initially thought that I would just fix the waviness of it.

But now I’m thinking that maybe I need to jazz up the whole quilt layout a bit.  It feels like it needs more color to me.  There is an awful lot of white space in this quilt…  Maybe add stars to the cornerstones?  Or a different layout all together that is more Gwen Marston/liberated-like?  (I have the Random Sampler on my mind)  Or add a few more coffee or food related blocks and remove some of the sashing?  What do you think?.

UPDATE:  I guess I blog too  much on the fly…  I just did a quick EQ version with cornerstones.  I’d love to hear your opinions!

And, I’m excited that I  got a good start on my low volume quilt at the quilt retreat this week.  3 days of uninterrupted sewing!  It was kinda hard to hang up a design wall on the log cabin walls, but we managed. I had such a good time with the ladies, even if I didn’t sleep very well.  I can’t wait to finish this quilt!

Where Am I?
