Sometimes having a lot of projects in process can get you down, that has been the case for me. I have had 2 quilts just waiting for borders and then I added another one and that was the straw that broke the camels back. I do not like adding borders- all that measuring, cutting long strips and then dealing with the whole big thing. I made this past week border week and I now have 3 quilts with finished borders! I decided I might as well get the backings ready too because that is no fun either. As I was doing all of this I realized that my least favorite quilting tasks all begin with the letter B - borders, backing, basting, and binding. I think I need to adjust my attitude because those steps are a very big part of quilting!
Since I got so much done this week I rewarded myself with starting a new project so my design wall has the beginnings of a jelly roll quilt. I have never used a jelly roll before but I wanted to try it so here is what I have so far. Not too exciting but I decided to divide the roll by color and see what that does for me. This may stay on the wall for awhile since this will be a busy week but at least it is a start.
I am a grown up girl who likes to sew and quilt. I have five grandchildren who constantly amaze me and provide a lot of inspiration for new projects. I still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up but I am trying lots of new things along the way.
