Anyway, as I'm making chit-chat with one of the sales women there, she asks what I'm making. I say I make baby quilts mostly - I'm loving the vibrant colors and patterns of the fabric out right now - and she asks what kind of block I'm making? Block? I know what a block is, but I stammer around and say that I like the big blocks that really show off the fabric. And she says "oh, that's really popular now - the big blocks."
All of a sudden I'm second-guessing myself. Do I need to have a block in mind when I buy fabric? Am I doing this backwards? I am doing it right? Should I be doing more complicated stuff? I panic a little inside.
So I'm backward and trendy - two things I'd rather not categorize myself as. And so I have to ask myself the question - "is the work I'm doing worth what I'm charging?" Could I be doing more creative and original stuff? Must ponder this...
Pic of quilt I finished last night. I call her Hippie Chic.
