After spending a few weeks struggling with the blocks for the Orca Bay quilt I'd started, I finally decided that it needed to be put away again. I've seen many photos of finished Orca Bays on Bonnie Hunter's Facebook feed. They look really fabulous but I found mine just wasn't going well. I was getting very frustrated and realised I wasn't enjoying the piecing at all. An eighth of an inch can seem huge when your triangles aren't matching up like they're supposed to. I eventually decided that if it was making me unhappy it just wasn't worth working on at the moment. It made me doubt my abilities and question why I was bothering to sew anything at all.
I have decided to start a new quilt and this churn dash is my first trial block. I have a gorgeous quilt pinned on my pinterest board thats a churn dash in pinks/reds/oranges I love the colour combo so I'll see how it goes. I didn't want anything with too many triangles, I'm all triangled out at the moment!
Hopefully next post I'll have some progress to share, progress on anything would be nice.
