The, ‘WIP’ or Work in Progress is such a daunting thought sometimes. I’ve read a lot of blogs with writers who refer to their WIP pile as their own personal hell hehe.
I’ve personally never had a huge WIP pile. I like to start and finish things relatively quickly, because that’s just the kind of person I am. So for me to have a WIP that has been dragging on for more than 18 months is pretty rare.
After the quilting disaster with my supersized block quilt (which I’ve not yet gotten over, or attempted to work on), I decided to rip off the bandaid on a WIP that I had little inspiration for.
It’s my black, white and grey starburst quilt, which I commenced at the beginning of 2014. Funnily enough, I was in a bit of a inspiration hole when I originally started this quilt, so it’s nice for this quilt to close the circle and actually be a source of inspiration for sewing, when I’ve been feeling a little down about it all lately.
The back was inspired by the autumn colours of the Japanese kimono fabric. I absolutely love the tones of this fabric, and the gold speck that run through it.
I’m really satisfied to have finished this WIP, and I think Mr A loves it.
