Well, truthfully, yesterday it was a serious case of how can I escape looking at the household jobs that need doing.....lol!
Those are *fantastic!*
Leave the project out, in its box, but so you can see it. One block a day or one block prepped and slowly but surely you'll get them all done!
I can see the end of my Art Deco Garden Forever Project.... I've just finished all 28 border blocks (but still need to make *140* small accent circles). I have only 4 12" blocks to prep and stitch. One block at a time!
Love the colors in those blocks. This will be a beauty.
Glad to know that you are in the very exclusive Forever Club with Pirate.
I ignored household tasks and sewed yesterday!
I'm jealous. My new job is stupid. They add 5 extra steps to every process. So I had to work all weekend again. Slowly but surely they will get whipped into shape.
Your blocks look fantastic!
Very pretty blocks the quilt should be gorgeous. Glad you took some time for yourself.
Thanks Shelley. Actually, I looked up a quilting friend that was doing this with me back in day. I Contacted her and we are going to set up periodic days to work on this long, long process.
And, while I was in the groove, I got on the computer and printed out a bunch more patterns for blocks and picked fabrics. This project fills one of those plastic milk type crates.
Thanks Judy....way, way back when this started, my plan never was to make a whole quilt. The Dear Jane blocks fascinated me and I wanted to make a dozen or so blocks and make a wall hanging. These ended up on the wall at the shop to show off a line of fabrics. Then, people wanted to make the blocks. So we started doing that monthly. We meet for maybe two years.
I am so are into this I would like to finish it at some point.
I have 129 blocks of the 225 blocks done. And have 5 more half done that have the applique parts ready to finish.
it is a HUGE project. Thus, t got put away.
Keep at it Mishi! If anyone can get that place better organized, it will be you.
but, do take some time for you! My day yesterday was for my mental health! (Attending 2 funerals for friends who lost 38/40 year old sons really depressed me! )
very nice. If you are tired of it, you could put together what you have so far. just a thought. That is how my DJ turned into a moderately small sized wall hanging.
