Now I know there are many methods of making quilts by now and some of them would allow me to create the design. However, with no offense to those who use these methods so successfully, they are not my methods. I don't fuse. I don't reverse applique. I don't paper piece. All of these methods would work--and there are many other methods that might also work. But they are not MY method.
So I continued to ponder and dream until finally it hit me. Yes, this just might work. I knew the colors. The concept. I could see a couple of tricks that might help. It has been a long cold spring. Shelburne Falls has been quiet. I might as well try.

Nice colors. Although this is taking forever.
Yes, this is finicky.
Is it even going to work? Should I continue or put it in the UFO pile? I sleep on it.
It only works from a distance. I peer in through my window. Yes, my neighbors shake their heads and wonder.
How many breaks can I take? When will I finish?
Still so much to do. So many questions to answer. Can I keep the colors the same on the bottom? It was the end of the day and I was impatient--probably not my best idea. Sigh.
So much more to do. So many more questions to answer. So many problems to solve. But the reward was showing the image to my DH and having him say "Wow".
What do you think? How do you begin a new project? How long does it take? And what is next?
