Swinging



The project weighing on me right now is my latest Bee Sewcial quilt. Yeah. It's always challenging to puzzle the improvisational blocks from my mates into a cohesive whole, but this one seems even tougher than usual.



For reasons I can't totally explain, this layout made sense to me. Squishing the blocks edge to edge just didn't feel right this time, so I'm working on a very irregular sashing of sorts. And in starting in on that, I realized I really needed to add one more block - my own take on the prompt "Looking Up."



I've asked all my bee-mates to share a one-word description of their blocks, and my word for mine is "Swinging." Imagine you're swinging, and as you pass under the bar, you lean all the way back, arms straight... and you look up. That's the moment I tried to express. I happened to be swinging with grandgirl when I took the inspiration photo, so it'll be nice to have that little memory tied up in this quilt. Here's hoping I can pull it all together in a cohesive way....
