done, fini, allaskapoofmakin finally!

Posted Sun, Mar 24 2013 8:52 AM by quiltcrone

Have you ever gotten into a project & realized you've bitten off more than you can chew? That was this project for me. Henceforth, I will leave the large scale quilting designs to those much more experienced than I. I have to admit that by the time I finished this quilt, I was beginning to seriously dislike it and I just wanted it done. At some point I will go back & redo a couple of spots on the binding that aren't what they should be, but for now all I'm gonna do is wash it & put it away!

I learned a lot from this quilt, but now I'm SO ready to move on! I've decided to participate in MQ8, plus there's another project I want to start...

I have found that when I get that way about a project, I put it down for awhile and work on something that is easier.  It usually restores my state of mind to allow me to pick it up again.  I used to make my daughter's clothes and learned to turn the sewing machine off mid seam rather than get frustrated.

Flo, that's good advice. I've been trying to stick with one project at a time so I don't wind up with a room full of UFO's, but this is certainly an argument for having at least one other project in the wings to work on!
