Sometimes I quilt. The rest
of the time I look at books, magazines and quilting sites trying to decide which project I want to do. Once I find the right pattern or think of a design I'd like to try it can take forever to find the right fabric. This year I'm going to change all that! I'm going to stop the insanity! No new books, no new fabrics.....who am I kidding??? Let's just say I'm going to relax, not worry so much about the outcome and enjoy the process!
"26, 26, 26", that's what is going over and over in my head. Why or what is 26 you might ask? It's the number of UFO's I have!!! I'm going to make a UFO page on my blog later this week so that everyone can see how much progress (or lack of) I will have made this year! The following picture is of a quilt I'm making for my daughter's 18th birthday. Oh, and by the way, she celebrated her 30th last year (glad I made you feel better about your own UFOs).
As tempting as it was to finish my daughter's quilt, I decided to work on something else for the FNSI. After all, what's a few more months added onto 12 years? I really need to get Moody Blues done. It's going to be my entry into our guilds quilt show in April. The small drunkard's path blocks were sewn together last night and I started joining the blocks together. There was a design dilemma part way through the evening so progress was halted.
With a little more sewing time left, I started on my blocks for the charm square challenge. It's not very interesting at the moment, but I think it will turn out well. I'm not revealing my idea for it until it's further along.
So that was my night. Now I have to check out what everyone else accomplished!
