Brown Bag Quilt
I finished this year’s Brown Bag Quilt a week or two ago.
You can read about past year’s quilts here:
Last year I loved the quilt I made. I wanted to love this one too. I was inspired by my friend’s churn dash quilt and wanted to make one like it.
This is what I ended up with:
I am sad because I don’t love it.
I think it would be better if it had more blocks, but I was tired of it by this time. I didn’t want to spend more time with it.
I also wonder if the fabrics weren’t crazy enough. I think I’m too close to these fabrics. The fabric in my friend’s churn dash were older than I am, so it is a crazy that I like rather than a crazy that I don’t like.
And I should have taken out the shamrock square – or cut it up. It is like my three year old child. It demands my undivided attention.
It was still a learning experience. I like the brown bag challenge for that reason. I experiment. Sometimes I like it. Sometimes I don’t.
