Bring it on! I love a challenge, even if I approach the challenge with gritted to teeth. Bat Sh*t Crazy is one massive challenge. Why? Simple, the piecing is beyond elaborate. There are some technical challenges such as to how to overlap buildings of different scales. Don’t forget the challenges of contrast, movement, focus, repetition and cohesiveness, just to name a few. Then there is the subject matter: Putin.
How do I face such an overwhelming challenge?
- I slow down
- I break things into manageable units
- I walk away
- I return
- I listen to the muse who suggested hinting at stained glass windows in the church
- I congratulate myself for saving the perfect remnant of fabric, purchased decades back, dragged through two moves to use in windows
- I accept this quilt is going to take months to make and that is OK.
Why do I put myself through such torture? Experience has taught me challenge is necessary for growth.
