Finishing......

I finished the quilting on the large piece yesterday.  You may have seen this on my sidebar as my current favorite.  I had a small repair I needed to do on one block and I laid it aside for months.  The repair took 15 minutes; the roadblock in my brain couldn't see that.  This piece is about 36" x 47" and the small ones which I made 2 days ago are around 20" x 24".  This large one is Crooked Cobblestones 1.  Number 2 is finished and was shown here. I started quilting on number 3 which is the largest last night.  It is shown here when I was spray basting it.  The fourth large one is a cross which had some construction problems.  I fixed that last night too so it is ready to baste and quilt.  You can see from this post that I let it hang on a hanger for almost 3 years before I fixed it.  I guess the promise of a show of my quilts is finally getting me in gear.

Funny how a repair is so much more stressful than making the quilt originally. I suffer from that also.

Debbie said...

Fabulous....all of them. You should be getting excited and working hard for your showing. Can't wait!!

I completely understand (!!!) what you describe as your mental roadblock ... congrats for getting over a couple of yours!

I'm so happy that your work is going to be shown -- for those of us who cannot get there in person, I hope someone takes LOTS of photos and video to share.

BTW my daffodils are coming up. Does this mean an early Spring? I am sure not an early spring but a cold winter for the daffodils. LOL The warm weather is making things sprout. I hope not too many get damaged.

On word. Gorgeous!

It's amazing! I'm glad you finally took the time to fix the block. Every time I have a lot of chores to do that I've been putting off I use a timer - I set it for 15 minutes and I only have to work on it for that long. It's surprising how much I can get done in 15 minutes!

I just wish I could be there to see all your beautiful work live and in person! Each is truly a work of art.
