Meltdown Monday

I have the priviledge of being around the most honest bunch of little people possible on this ‘Day After’ Daylight Savings Time change. They are letting me know in a brutally truthful manner just how much humanity in general hates this change of routine. Meltdowns are just one way I witness the contempt they have. They don’t feel good and I have to put on my best face and dig out all my resources to push through days like this. Somehow, we managed to navigate the first half of the day in this daycare without damage to life or limb.

For myself, I find my happy place in thinking about what I’m going to do after work. So I’m sharing a little bit of my latest project. Beginning with a collage of the process.

 

The captions will tell the story, but basically I needed to combine some pastels with the 3 blocks I chose. I would have loved to use the red one, but it just wasn’t cohesive enough. It will have a quilt home though. I’m thinking, red, white and blue for its future. Would you agree?

Below is my final composition.

It will lie in this present state until after the 2018 April A to Z Challenge. It will make the perfect hand quilting project once I get to it. But the call of planning my A to Z entries is underway. The big reveal is on March 19.  And remember,

Dull women have immaculate houses.

    • I have asked several quilting friends and searched my books for the name of this block. But to no avail I’m afraid. The best response I found was a variation of ‘orange peel’. I’m thinking it may have come from the Kansas City Star as we are fairly close to there and would explain its identity crisis. Lol I wish I had designed it 😊 Thanks for the good wishes for tomorrow.
