quilt in progress

I started this quilt about two months ago. It has been sitting in a pile under the sewing machine since the first burst of inspiration.

I have named it "box of crayons" since I modeled it roughly on a pattern glimpsed in a book that the preliminary piecing is done, I find it lacking the "umph" it needs to make the project interesting.

I'm greasing up my scissors to give it a de - constructed edge. And, as an impetus to actually finishing (besides this blog of course!), I've entered it in the local county fair. Deadline: September 10th.

And for further motivation, a glimpse of the past....a quilt I made almost thirteen years ago. You can read about its history here.
