I suddenly realized that I’ve only managed to finish one quilt this year – my Siblings Together quilt. I can’t remember when I last had so little to show for a year….quite a few bee blocks, one small, quick quilt and a plain vanilla jumper…..
Part of the problem I think is that the projects I get involved in are, well, all ….big. I’m not a quick project person, never have been….so although I’ve been sewing on my projects – the leaves quilt and the fireworks quilt – pretty regularly, neither of them is anywhere near being finished. I guess that’s the downside of working and not having a lot of time to sew….my things are going to take forever and a day to get done. I will finish them, I always do, but it ain’t gonna happen in a hurry.
Not to mention my lovely Stitch Tease quilt top from last year. I’m feeling a bit guilty on that one as in the last few months a lot of finished tops have been popping up all over the web – and very beautiful they are too – mine is still sitting in it’s box waiting for a border. At least I’ve got as far as buying the fabric I need to make the border, even if I haven’t quite made my mind up about what exactly I’m going to do.
I did manage to get one of Ange’s blocks for this year’s Stitch Tease done this morning…..
She’s making a quilt made with all different sorts of house blocks – this one is ‘Schoolhouse’ by Soma Acharya of Whims and Fancies.
One more to go…the next one has to be purple.
Little steps eh!
