Back to one hour on an old project.............

I got a little sidetracked and didn't stay with my one hour a day on an older project.  I decided that yesterday I needed to get back on track with it.  This little top (42" x 52" was just waiting for the 2.5" strips to be sewn onto it.  Can you believe it has been waiting for 7 years.  Here it is when I got the main part sewn together.  I had just gotten my Studio die cutter and explain the die I used here.
Here is my favorite Hosta again this year.  It starts out with plain green leaves and then the centers start turning a lighter green and by the end of the summer they are almost white.

I just finished a 16 year old project last week. It feels good, doesn't it!

I love your exuberant colors!

I started following you late fall of 2011. I had retired in June 2011, joined a quilt guild, and a new guild friend gave me a link to you. Ever since, I have been treated to such wonderful quilts and stories. Lovve the star quilt.

I love this quilt and I am inspired to make one like it to use up much of my overwhelming pile of scraps.

I like your idea to work one hour a day on old projects.

I am loving the “one hour a day” on old projects. Guilt just kills your creativity.

Oh, I like this quilt! The white background really makes the Kaffe fabrics pop. Do you know the name of your hosta? It's a beauty!

7 years Wanda, how could you let such a beautiful wonder go that long? Such a delightful piece. What else do you have hiding in your WIPs?

I would say a 7 year old project is an old project so it qualifies! It is good that it is done. That hosta is gorgeous!

What a great quilt to see on a hot summer day ! I agree with Ramona you couldn't have chosen a better background. Your white really makes your stars pop.

I am so glad to know I'm not the only one who leaves something for years and years with only one small thing left to be added!

Love the star quilt, your plan using one hour to deal with older projects is paying dividends!
