Quilt in progress

modern art quilt in progress

So along with gallivanting through the countryside and embarking on complicated furniture builds, the other thing that kept me distracted from my typical blogging duties was this Mondrian quilt I finished designing last week.

I can. Not. tear myself away from it. I stopped making dinner, I ignored my family, I thought about it when I was trying to go to sleep. I couldn’t get it out of my head. It was like when I was a kid and played so much Tetris on the nintendo that every time I closed my eyes I saw pieces falling into place. I was obsessed.

I am not a fast quilter, and this is a king sized quilt, so I was expecting this to take me ages. But thanks to the obsession, I already have all the blocks pieced. I forced myself to put it away at that step and actually remember what my family looks like, but I don’t think I’ll be able to ignore it for much longer. It’s like sewing myself a big puzzle. I can’t resist it.
