After making a quilt for a baby shower (at the end of the kookaburra post), I thought it would be nice to make one for Liam...especially as it has different textures on it. I've been procrastinating, but not sure why. Enough I thought.
I laid out the squares and immediately felt uncomfy...I laid out all of them...perhaps I'm being silly. I asked Kris (see I was desperate..."I hate it" said he..."please don't say its for us" and "did you choose that fabric?"). That made me feel good... not. Now I would also like to point out that I do not like making things I hate, even if they are to give away :).

I've removed the offending stripy really did not go, but something is still not right. I think I may take out the monkeys and multi-coloured circles. At the moment its lying on the spare room floor. Hopefully I will be able to salvage something out of it.

Oh well, at least i got some painting done.

Hugs to all,


  1. I think natural linen color would go perfectly to it, like the open spaces in the picture. I think the rest goes in very well! Good luck with figuring out.

  2. I think Simone is onto something! The colors are fantastic!

  3. Hi Sharon,
    I'm sure you'll figure out just what to do.
    I'd also be more inclined to go for a neutral colour!
    Sometimes "less is best"
    Happy creating,

  4. Hi sweetie!
    Have you tried it without the very bright turqoise/lime green dotty patterned fabric? Then like Simone says, add some neutrals? I love the monkeys!! And I love the colours! Liam will love snuggling up with all those textures!!! Don't give up sweetie - where there is a will there is a way, things never come together for me first time, it always takes a while of swapping and changing to get comfortable with a project.
    Hugs!! Vikki xoxo
