I was having trouble deciding what to work on for my day off this week and as I was going through my checklist, I realized nothing particularly appealed. So I did a side trip and did a project that I hadn't even considered putting on my list because I had deemed it far too ambitious and well, insane given the number of other projects. While in the rabbit hole that is the internet, I came across a gorgeous quilt that someone had made with all different scraps of red fabric and a few snitches appliqued on. I of course immediately wanted one, but realized that it was more than I really had time for.
BUT...I modified a version of it. Instead of small strips of fabric laid out in brick like form, I went with just strips of whatever red fabric I had. And instead of several small snitches, I went with one larger one that took up the bulk of space on the piece. And I made it much smaller. Not sure where it'll eventually end up, but I've got a few ideas. It took a few hours all in all, mostly helped by the fact that I had all the material, as well as some leftover binding from the most recent dragon blanket. It's not quilted--I just put a piece of red fabric on the back before putting on the binding, but I want it to be light, and serve as a wall covering. I still need to attach some loops or something to the back so it'll hang, but as I'm not sure where it'll go, I think I'll hold off on that for a bit. All in all, well pleased with how I spent the afternoon:)
Oh, also finished up the extra yellow bean bags (25)
