I was so tired from yesterday that I didn't have much energy, but had to finish this commissioned baby quilt for someone at work. This was an interesting project for me, in that the woman I was making the quilt for wanted a "ladybug" theme. I am not fond of black and red together and hoped that I could find something that she would like. Together we found this main fabric that had ladybugs - but I still found it insipid and colorless. Luckily I had the green spotted fabric and the pink and green fabric and I think that keeps it from being too insipid overall.
This is the first time that I have asked someone what they want to have for a main fabric, and it's going to be the last. From now I the fabrics come from my selection only, unless they have something very special. I simply can't get excited by a fabric that I don't like. They can buy them or not, I really don't care. What is important to me is to enjoy what I am doing and get aesthetic pleasure from it. In terms of detail, this is the best one I have done yet. MOSTLY all the corners match up, I just had some trouble with the binding but no on will ever know.
By the way, someone at work said that "you don't use a baby quilt, you hang them on the wall". Hello! someone help me. What good is a baby quilt if it isn't covered in baby!
I am falling asleep at the computer. Time for bed.
