If I commit to a project and it really doesn't make my heart sing then I feel stifled creatively. I tend to waffle and then I end up not doing anything creative for days on end........even months.
For me this is not a good space to be in. So the best thing I think with this project is to start again. My mistake was that I didn't look at the BIG picture.....the finished piece of work...the four seasons as a cohesive whole. I can only say that it was because I'm new to this type of project. I have never made a wall hanging in my life or anything even remotely close to being described as a wall hanging......LOL.
So a rethink is required. Hmmmm. Do I make four CQ blocks that somehow flow into each other as seasons do? Is some kind of common element or a crossover element of some sort required? Maybe when they are put together? Am I wrong about this? Can I even do that with crazy quilting blocks?
I suspect that I may be making this into a difficult task by over thinking it....as I do...frequently.....sigh.
After it's finished will people understand that it's supposed to be the four seasons? Do I care?
To be honest it would be nice to make something that represents what I intend and that people understand and get it. But, lets be honest...it won't happen. It's my first attempt. If I'm happy with it then that's all that matters.
First it has to be started and most importantly finished.
One thing I know. Instead of making four 12 inch squares for my wall hanging I'm going to make smaller blocks. I found it very daunting as a new CQer to cover such a large expanse of space.
I'll be back soon. Stay tuned:)
