I have to include the exclamation point to imply “do it now.” Whenever I (try to) start a project, I waste time changing my mind about the quilt pattern, my fabric choices, etc. Sometimes I never begin the project because of my indecision. I even started looking in the dictionary for a different word!
Instead, my word motivated me to go to my stash and pull out scraps of hot pink (my favorite) along with black + white fabric squares I had previously made. I threw them on some batting and started rearranging and trimming until I liked the design. I treated the made fabric like applique pieces and used spray adhesive to keep everything in place ~ I felt like a little kid again gluing colored construction paper onto poster board! I sewed all the pieces down with decorative stitches and bound it with white twill tape. The finished little quilt is 15 1/2″ h x 12″ w.
I selected my word and made my quilt in response to the New Year Challenge at 15 Minute’s of Play. Be sure to check out what’s inspiring other quilters this year.
