Although the triangle strips aren't sewn yet, I am confident they will fit the sides of the log cabin center. I am not keeping the corner blocks, which look dopey and clumsy. I could add them to my box of other dopey looking blocks.
My friend Mary sent me links to three amazing quilters (see below) and I completely lost confidence in my own abilities and direction and thought what in the world I am doing?
I have spent my whole career talking about how easy it is to do intricate looking designs easily by fusing and then to see what these artists do, by piecing unimaginably tiny bits to form these wonderful quilts, well, they knocked me over into a deep hole, and I covered me over with a ton of self pity.
I am SO OVER IT NOW. But it put a halt to working in the studio. And may I say, Mary's work is just as fabulous, intricate and dazzling as these artists, but when one looks at the number of gorgeous quilts all in one gulp, it overwhelms.
