Almost done (thank goodness)
Why, you ask?
I have no idea, but I have grown to detest the quilt. Husband likes it for the purple and green colors and all the white areas (he likes bright colors and light designs) but I'm thoroughly sick of the fabrics and the construction. It started when I decided to make two kinds of blocks and cut up some of the subunits to add that darker purple square on the sides of them. I had thought about also using a narrow purple sashing between the blocks but the amount of effort involved put me off. Besides it makes a nicer pattern when the blocks adjoin like this.
But now I just want it done. When it's completed and quilted I may be able to look at it and say "that's interesting" but for now - yuck. However I felt about it I wasn't going to make it another UFO and clutter up the closet with it. Just get it finished.
