Do you recall your teen years? I do. As Charles Dickens wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” The teen years are the years of discovery, excitement and confidence. They are also scary, unsettling and and full of insecurity. Quilts have teen years. Pretty in Pink is there now. Gasp.
What’s not to love about a baby? They are full of possibilities, gorgeous and just darn cute. But a teenager, particularly a teenager in full out “I hate you” teen rebellion, well that is another story all together.
Is Pretty in Pink salvageable? I’m not sure. However, just like parenting a teen, I am not willing to give up yet. I do see strengths. Maybe, if I take a deep breath, soften a few highlights, the piece will come together. I will cross my fingers, square my shoulders and keep stitching next week.
I am finished with my 2023 Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. So now what? I believe I saw this adorable crayon quilt in an EQ8 blog post. Between now and next January I should have quite a collection of possible RSCQs to choose from. I have five images so far saved in my 2024 RSCQ album. 🙂
