glimma

I almost forgot about this quilt, but my cotton and steel quilt (the 16 patches), reminded me of it.  I started this one almost a year ago, finished all the 16 patches and laid them out and did NOT like it.  (It's beginning to sound like I dislike all the quilts I make...not true, just the ones I put away for a long time.) I quickly snatched them up and put them away--out of sight, out of mind.  Which is pretty much what happened.  I forgot about them, which is a good thing because I just wasn't feeling it. 
Then I stumbled on this quilt (I LOVE that quilt), and felt like my glimma quilt could be saved!  SASHING!  So I played around with a few colors, and I think this essex linen (flax) will make it work!  Yay.  I'm actually feeling pretty excited about this quilt now, which is a miracle, because I was not happy with it before.

I think it's going to be gorgeous with the sashing! I've been kind of going through the same thing ~ I have 70 blocks from the City Sampler QAL that have been sitting for months ~ I finally ordered the sashing fabric today. Now I'm inspired to get it done! Thanks!! :)
