Follow Your Gut

I'm calling my Intuition Quilt my "Guts" Quilt. Since intuition is basically a gut feeling, and that's what we're supposed to go with for this quilt. And since part of what I've done sorta looks like a pile of guts so far . . .

I made a center block without any regard for what I was pulling out of the bag of scraps. I just grabbed and sewed. When it was big enough, I cut my big center square out of it. I'm tempted to slap a big ol' applique daisy on top of it, but so far I've resisted. Intuition?While I was digging through the bag of scraps (which was a gift from my best friend -- who wonders why I would call her trash a "gift"), I found these . . .Circles made up of 2 fabrics. I knew I had to incorporate them into my Intuition Quilt . . . just a gut feeling!

So I made square backgrounds out of other fabrics, and will be appliqueing all these little circles on to go around my center square.
I haven't thought it out any further than that. I'm going to get the circles put on, then put it back up on the wall and let it talk to me some more.

Now I'm off to play some more!

I love the music fabric. Do you know where it came from? The circles are going to be so interesting. Can't wait to see the next step.

I think the music fabric is a Christmas print from a long time ago. It was in the bag my friend gave me, so I have no idea where she got it.
