Anyone remember the old school Atari "Breakout" game? Well, for years now I've been wanting to make a quilt based on that game. I think it was the rainbow stripes that appealed to me the most. Anyway, at first I was planning on making a big one for my husband, but then I discovered that he wants me to make him something ridiculous and complicated that makes me want to curl into the fetal position and go night-night for a millennia or two. So the idea of a big one was scrapped. But after making my doll quilt I thought--why not just make a little one and get it out of my system?
So that's what I did. This took me a few days of leisurely putting around and gives me that happy, got-it-out-of-my-system, instant gratification feeling. Even with all the mistakes, miscalculations, and crooked quilting. I still love it. Plus I just think the heart is funny.
Now that I started and finished this little guy, I should probably get back to all the half-finished projects I've got laying around, dying for a lack of attention. But I don't wanna! I want more fast projects!!
