I have many items that qualify to be included (the projects have to be started and in UFO status, not just floating around in my brain) but I will have to temper my enthusiasm by including those items that I can also finish by the end of the quarter, another one of the rules. Here we go:
1. Mod Mosaic Quilt - it only needs the binding put on it, so I should be able to check this one off the list rather quickly. This is the last photo I took of it, before quilting:
2. Wonky Log Cabin (in the stack and whack style). The blocks are all made (in this photo I still had a few to go). I'm ready to assemble and then quilt (likely by checkbook). It's too large for my current skill set.
3. Scrappy String Block Quilt - it's assembled, backing has been assembled and I'm ready to move on to quilting it (it's small enough I think I can handle it myself). I don't have a photo of it and I don't want to hold up this post to take one now, so I'll add it later.
4. Improv Block Quilt - it's assembled and ready for quilting. This is the last photo I have of it. That was last summer and it's still sitting around unfinished!
Guess I'll stop at this point. I do have a few other projects that could be considered for this Q2 finish, but they aren't far enough along for me to realistically believe that I will be able to complete them in time.
Hmmmm, I think I'm beginning to see the hold up in my quilting process as I look back at these projects. The actual quilting seems to be the roadblock for me! I love the creative process of design and enjoy getting the top completed. I don't really enjoy quilting and have only recently started to work on a few of my projects in order to stretch myself. What about you - do you have roadblocks in your quilting process?
Why not join the FAL and get some additional motivation to complete a project that otherwise might languish? It couldn't hurt!
Aaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
