Left brain: Holy cow do we have a lot of leftover fabrics. We better figure out how to use those up because you know we don't have any more room for more boxes in that cupboard. What to do...
Right brain: Oooh...modern scrap quilt!
Left brain: Yeah right. First of all, you have no idea HOW to make those. Second of all, all those pieces in random sizes and wonky angles and points that intentionally don't match. I think I'm getting sick.
Right brain: But you don't have to know how, just dig in and start sewing and cutting. It will all work out in the end because that's the whole point.
Left brain: Hmmm... But you don't have the right funky modern colors. Or enough of them. Too much of what we have is more traditional in color, so it will look foolish.
Right brain: Maybe not. Maybe we'll just have to look harder for the right pattern. Maybe we'll have to make up our OWN pattern.
Left brain: Yeah right. We all know you're too left brained to pull that off. You've been taught quilting in the traditional way, and I'm here to make sure you stay right inside that box. All neat and tidy. You're a SCIENTIST in real life, for gosh sakes.
Right brain: But I WANT to work outside the box! Crazy left brain control freak. I can do both. You can manage that.
Left brain: Yes, I can manage you, but I think you should figure out a traditional quilt to use up those scraps.
Right brain: But I don't want to. That box is getting boring and you won't even allow me to decorate it.
Left brain: I give up. Go ahead, but you know it's gonna be ugly.
Do you think I need help?
