I have narrowed down the choices of fabrics that will go with my tea towel. I loved Sophie's chickens from last year. The details in her towel lent themselves perfectly for chickens, baby chicks and eggs in the surrounding layers. I didn't seem to pick that up when I chose the London Fog. I do love the London Fog, I think it will stretch my abilities and create a wonderful quilt in the end. I may have some pains getting there though!
I think I need one more fabric, a yellow zinger. I don't have the right yellow in my stash so I will have to find a piece in a quilt shop. I was glad to find that greenish grey at Charlene's beautiful shop in Lafayette, J & B Quilting.
Here is where I am right now. I may end up making some changes or additions later on. I will have to eventually cut up some of the fabrics and add them to the towel. This is the scariest part of quilting for me. Well, one of them. Starting a design on my own.
It scares a lot of people, I know. I feel my heart beat increase and my stomach clenches. Really. I know that is what you feel too. But if you resolve to just take the next step, you can over come that.
And once the quilt is going and you love it, and other people love it too, you will be filled with an excitement that feels like an increased heart beat and a stomach clench........with a little elation tossed in!
