Pillow Gift

My cousin's husband will be graduating from college in early May. He has loved a couple of CQ pillows I made for my little cousins, so I plan to make one for him as his graduation gift. The colors of the school are Garnet, Gold, and Black. Now doesn't that bring up dramatic images in your mind? It certainly does in mine. The choices of fabrics were pretty when they were in the group to use.

Yesterday I started putting the top together, and it was anything other than dramatic. I was attempting to use some printed materials that included the colors, but it was a mess. Took it back apart to start over. Makes me wonder if that's why I haven't been doing much cq lately... have I lost the creative edge, or just out of practice? I'll post the next attempt and seek your comments.

You are not losing your creative edge! Look at the non-CQ things you've done lately! Sometimes, it just doesn't go the way we picture it. Happens to me all the time!

I think you're just out of practice (g). Maybe we all need to do another block swap!
