I find myself still totally unsure about this Golden Shadows quilt (that really doesn’t have shadows anymore, if it ever even did). I find it uninspiring and yet the actual construction is coming out quite well. I had framed all the blocks in gold; 3 were narrow frames, 6 were wider. I then framed the frames with a speckled beige and evened them all out at 12 inches square. These are the three narrow ones:
And these are the six wider ones:
And then I got bored and started to sew the blocks into big blocks. And then I wanted the quilt (now apparently it’s to be a quilt, not a large pillow) to be bigger. I added four solid blocks of the gold. Now I have three sets of four blocks and no idea what to do with them. Obviously, at a little short of 6 ft by 2 ft, it needs to be widened. I’m out of gold fabric, out of charm squares and out of ideas!
So instead of something beautiful to share today, I’m sharing my frustration. But, on the bright side, I have found a recipient for this quilt if and when I ever finish it.
