As I have mentioned on more than one occasion, I quilt for the monotony of it. I like being focused on lining things up and the repetition calms me. Picking fabrics has the opposite effect. I have a hard time looking all the colors and seeing the end result. I tend to over think pattern combinations and get overwhelmed. My loving husband comes to my rescue when I start a project. He is able to find the perfect combinations. This quilt is a great example. I was so worried that there were too many creams and the circles would get lost. My husband stayed the course and kept telling me it would be fine. He was right. I couldn't wait to piece together these runs. Lo and behold, there are circles. If it wasn't for him, I'd probably still be in the fabric store driving the sales people nuts. Thanks to him I sit in my new quilting nest with the machine humming away, pleased with the results.
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years. ~Simone Signoret
