Maybe it's because we can't imagine it coming together the way the last one did. Maybe it's because this one requires some actual artistic skill - there's perspective to consider.
Whatever it is, we've procrastinated. A lot.
Ben has graciously used his actual artistic talent to draw out the house and some key lines. We've each chosen the room we want to create. I chose the master bedroom. This cracks me up because my own bedroom is generally a pit, the dumping ground for all the homeless things in our house.
We've decided it's a 1930's-ish house. Someone else mentioned a farmhouse, but what fun is that? I want to DREAM!
Funny story. When I started looking for inspiration, I googled "1930's master bedroom" and the first link that popped up was this gorgeous room. I realized that the decorator is a guy I graduated with from high school, who is now some big name designer in magazines! Our 25th reunion is in October, and I'd love to bring a picture of the finished quilt to show him.

Here's what I have so far. Tomorrow I might try actual cutting. Sewing will have to wait until next week.
Tomorrow I'll share the fabric dilemma.
