Two Down, One Scraped? Who Rah!!

In a recent post I bemoaned the stress I had created for myself, starting three quilts around the same time. I usually don’t  jump back and forth between several  projects. It’s easy to get into that frame of mind, there is so much beautiful fabric available, it’s hard to control the urge to start a new project with every new wonderful fabric you see or buy. It reminds me of a 2 year old running from one toy to the next until he has emptied his whole  toy box. I always feel that I’m 4 or 5 projects behind.

The point I’m rather  slow in making is this, it is a great feeling to finish one and start your next. I it is it is a sense of satisfaction to have completed really good feeling to finish one and move to the next. I’m feeling a little cocky and relieved too, I finished two of them.  Woo Rah!!

At this point I  had  just about decided to scrap the 3rd, I just wasn’t  feeling it, at a creative stand off.  Glad  I kept going, cause I got over the hump and find that now I like it.  Np pictures yet I’m quilting it. I did use commercial fabrics on it, maybe I’m a bit prejudiced about that .

So I’ll post pics of the first one and next two in my following my post.

  1. You’re a brave soul to juggle three quilts at once, Barbara. Or maybe a bit crazy? 😉 As a non-quilter but a huge admirer of your work, I’m awed at the designs you come up with. These English cottage garden quilts are pure eye candy!

    • Bonnie, I’m just a wus, most quilters are juggling multiple quilts.I think about 1/2 of the things I write are more to be entertaining, than taken seriously, at least maybe in my wee little brain I’m think I’m being entertaining! Thanks for your nice comments, you know how I feel about Bonnie Bruno Photography, top notch, wonderful. I wish I could look over your shoulder, as you are working and learn. As much as I enjoy photography, I’m just a hobbyist and love looking the pros’s work, trying to guess how they did that and hoping I learn. Did you include a link to your site? If not, will you please do so?I know that your beautiful work would be enjoyed.
