Anyone who reads this blog sooner or later comes up against my preference to go large. Habitually I find myself wanting/needing to impose a lower limit of around 60" square. But yesterday I looked at my little shirt-circle quilt, currently 52" each way, and decided to stop.
This wasn't an easy decision. I wanted, really wanted to keep going. I tried out all sorts of different ideas - more borders, more squares of shirting, a sort of piano key thing, but guess what? When I stood back and was honest with myself none of them added anything at all, beyond size. I couldn't come up with a single option that convinced me to carry on.
I could/might add the little blue strip you can see at the bottom but in the fullness of time a binding would serve the same purpose. I have left it in this picture just because it makes it easier so see the quilt against the dark floor.
Maybe stepping away will lead me to a solution I can't find right now, or maybe I am really done but I can't pretend I am entirely comfortable with my decision, so if I am missing anything obvious, please feel free to point it out to me (as long as it doesn't involve making more little circle blocks!)
