Earlier in the month at the 11th hour I changed my August ’16 OMG Goal from a kitty quilt to working on a quilt for a friend whose birthday is in October. One problem with writing a revised post at the last minute is that I was not specific about what I wanted to accomplish. For this reason, I don’t want Heidi to include me in the drawing this month for the lovely fat eighths bundle from her Etsy shop. But I am happy to share that I did accomplish the goal was in the my head, to complete the quilt top for my friend. I ended up changing the pattern, so I am no longer calling this project the Midnight Stars quilt, it’s new name is Diamond Stars quilt. Below is a mock-up of the revised design in Quiltography. I really like the middle star that was created when I altered my design.
And below is a pic that shows the middle star of the completed quilt top (along with a few wrinkles I didn’t have time to press out).
Tomorrow my friend and I are going together to ThreadBear where she will pick out the design she wants Michael to quilt. I’m thinking a variegated thread will look really nice on the peacock background.
Linking up to Red Letter Quilts August Finishes.
Good job! You’ll have explain to me why you have to explain why you changed your mind or went in a different direction. I thought that was women’s prerogative!
It looks great. I’m sure your friend will love it.
Congratulations on getting the quilt top together, it looks great! And how fun that your friend gets to ok the quilting motif. I hope you have a good time together. 🙂
Really beautiful! Such a delight to see your artistry!
It’s all about the process. Danged good, you!
Spontaneity is what creativity is all about , plus not having to explain to anybody !
I change my current project all the time . Your friend will love this
I completely relate to changing goals, and especially to changing design plans! I surprise myself sometimes with inability to select a priority only weeks ahead. It seems clear at the time, then only days later I want to head in another direction. I appreciate your having linked your goal, shared your change in plans, and most of all that you finished your goal to your satisfaction, with this beautiful quilt top for your friend. It is really about focusing and completing a task and I will not exclude you from the prize-pool!
