As I am slogging away at reorganising my space (yes still at that), I have been unearthing a lot of unfinished quilts. I tend to jump around between projects mostly when I get tired of piecing, bored, hit a problem, get a new idea, well pretty much for any reason at all.
However I didn’t realise I had such a major problem. I discovered 10 different projects that I have been working on in the last month! Needless to say this was a bit disheartening, so I stopped and finished one.
It took me a grand total of 2 hours to finish this quilt, photograph it and list it for sale .
I started this quilt after my dad sent me a link to pictures of Dutch tulip fields, the amazing surreal stripes of colour across the landscape begged to put into a quilt, I immediately ran out to my dye station and dyed the fabrics. As soon as they were ready to use I dived right in. I quit when the quilting wasn’t going right. If you look closely you can see it has a quilted motif of tulips. When I sat down to finish it up I loosened up the shape of the buds, and it just clicked.
So now I only have 9 current works in progress, but I know most of them are only needing a few hours work, and that makes it seem so much more doable.
