I was wrong. It's been two and a half months since I started, and this is all I've got.
|I've got a LONG way to go!|
So today, I flipped the script. I'll still work on this quilt, but as a leader and ender project while I work on something else. Have I finished my log cabin quilt yet? Nope. How about my Carpenter's Wheel? Nah. Instead, I pulled out a baggie of shirting & shirting-like neutrals that I've been wanting to play with, and started making a variation of Bonnie Hunter's Smoky Mountain Stars quilt. With my significant stash of pre-cut squares, I picked out a bunch of red and blue 2.5" squares, cut my neutrals to 4.5", and got to work. Quick and easy, just what I need to feel productive again! Here's what I got done in the hour or so I spent in the sewing room today PLUS 2 sashing strips and a 9-patch cornerstone for the plaid quilt AND a pile of bonus triangles, already sewn up.
|Oops! That top right square is oriented wrong. I love how a photo helps you really see your project.|
|the back - removable so I can change out pillow covers|
Here's hoping my productive streak continues!
