Wel done Sloth! I like the Batman one, those blocks are a good way to show off the fabrics. It's very loud and colourful, but that's really suitable for a comic book quilt.
I'm really at a point in my life where for the first time, everything is quite settled and that's also showing in my crafting closet: I haven't had so few WIPs in years. I actually get round to finishing things up, cleaning out my closet, giving away stuff I'm not going to use anymore and I don't start new stuff just because I'm bored. I'm sure this phase will pass
but it's a nice break from chaos for now.
I was going to work on my autumn leaves quilt, but I've abandoned it yesterday. I hadn't made so many blocks (about 2 rows worth of blocks) but I really wan't happy with the colour combinations, even though the fabrics looked good together. It doesn't feel autumny - too many dark colours together.
I do want to finish the In Full Bloom quilt this week and I'm trying to complete a few more blocks from the 365 Quilting Challenge too. It's a lot of work and the quilt is going to be huge (90x90 inch) but the blocks don't take that much time to complete and they progressively get more difficult. You really get to practice every possible type of block. It's really good for learning!
A few people try to make every single block perfect, but I've decided I'm not really going to re-do blocks unless I really have to. I'm not a perfectionist and this sampler quilt is all about learning. Besides, it's going to be so big the only place I can store it will be on the bed and I tend to sleep with my eyes closed
