There will be time, there will be time . . .

Time for you and time for me,

And time yet for a hundred indecisions,

And for a hundred visions and revisions,

Before the taking of a toast and tea.  - TS Eliot, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock

Ironic, is it not, that this quilt was inspired by that quilt.
Since it seems like every step of the way I am plagued by indecision.
To sash? Not to sash? Cram them together? Keep them apart?
Seriously, I love picking crazy colour combinations and relationships and backgrounds when I'm making my blocks. And then I drive myself crazy trying to figure out how to fit the blocks together in a way that doesn't make you squint.

Or maybe I just like squinting. Haven't decided yet. There will be time, there will be time.

In the meantime, I'm dreaming of another loud combination that screams summer in the city (coffee, water parks, hot concrete, brown eyed susans and echinacia flowers, bricks, mud, rain, humidity, candy, ice cream, popsicles, playground equipment . . . )
The nice things about hobbies is that it doesn't really matter. No one will ever riot in the streets because of my colour choices. Except maybe my kids when they have to figure out what to do with my pile of crazy quilts when I die.

Tea, anyone?


  1. Hey! I like the top picture of this quilt the best. I can't wait to see what you finally decide on! Your quilts are always beautiful. :-)

  2. I say no sashing!! I love the way it looks whit the blocks right next to each other. Much more modern? Fresh? You still see each block because of the way they each have their color.. The quilt reminds me of sorbets and icecreams in a shop :) Beautiful, and yummy!

  3. Oh.... you could also piece them "on point" so that it reads as plusses... Just making sure your indecision can get even worst ;))
