Reflecting Pool–Round 3

Well, I had my Round Robin piece up on my design wall, but didn’t like anything I tried with it.  I even sewed some to it, but then took it out.  I tried it lop-sided, wonky, and any way I could think of.  Finally, I got disgusted, took it down and shoved it in a box.  That took from  my last post (way back when) until just today when “Eureka!”  I suddenly knew what my problem had been:  me.  It’s not that what I had didn’t work, it’s that I was trying to make it conform to my preconceived pattern idea.  I’d forgotten what I said in my first post:  The colors are wild.  Yes, indeed, they are.  This quilt is all about color pattern. Soon as I remembered that, ideas just jumped together.  This is the Round 3 Rectangles (large, small and all sizes).
Got it.  Remind me of that first posting again next time I get stuck, will you please?


  1. I like what you did with your quilt, Wendy. That's a good reminder to all of us: to let go of preconceived ideas. Liberation = freedom. Good job!

  2. I like it too, I think the b/w fabric is perfect.
    Btw did you get my email about the fabric in the middle ? I found a left-over piece, about 4 1/2 x 32 ". I could send it to you, if you want

  3. The variety of rectangles is awesome! Very creative. They are hidden throughout - peeking out and really adding to your project. : )
