far better than I imagined
I recently put together a quilt top - here it is in strips, before being sewn together. My intent was to use greens, blues and yellows, with a bit of warm pink here and there. As I was cutting I wondered how it would look with so many pea greens next to cooler greens, aquas near dark blues. I had my doubts. But one thing I've realized I'm not good at, is imagining how something is going to look.
Anna has many times exclaimed over the transformation which takes place after quilting - how the whole thing seems to come alive. But I'm already amazed at how pretty this is - so much better than I imagined! It's off to the side while I sew something else, but not for long; I look forward to finishing this patchwork quilt.
