I went to Stratford on Thursday and retrieved my beloved Janome. He passed his physical with flying colours!
While I was there, I seen some of his newer, bigger, (much more expensive) cousins. There were some real beauties there. But I am happy with my Janome.... For now.
I also did a little fabric shopping while I was in town. My son now refers to me as a fabric junkie! I am not ashamed!
We set to work first thing on Friday morning. I designed a 'pixel' quilt in 3" squares to make a Fall Leaves couch quilt. So now it is Saturday, supper time, and I have completed 17 of the 20 rows to make the quilt.
I know... I know... I really should have started working on the backing for the Enchantment pinwheel quilt, but I am not yet sure what I am going to do for the backing. Whole cloth.... Pieced.... And what colour??? Sew, I figured starting something new would give me time to think about it.
Tomorrow, straight after church, I will be back at the Fall Leaves quilt. And complete the top.
Do you feel like you have to finish a quilt before starting on something new? Do you find you lose interest in finishing a quilt if you don't?
I have seeing/quilting ADHD. I have so many projects that I want to do. But my quilting resolution is to not start one more than 2 quilts at the same time. We'll seeeeee. Nice blog.
Thanks so much for sharing, Shannon. Great resolution. Almost do-able... No more than two at a time? Good luck with that! We all have the greatest of intentions, don't we?
