I like new. New fabrics, new ideas, new projects....oooh, shiny! But, every once in awhile, it feels good to pull a quilt out and finish something for once. I'm in that mood right now. So, if my blog has been obnoxious lately with the amount of finished items, please know that all of these have been months in the making.
Or....ten years in the making.
These started as one queen size jeans and corduroy quilt TEN years ago. Then the quilt top loitered in my craft cupboard for 9 years. I pulled it out last year to baste it and attempt to quilt it.
Let's just say that it didn't go well. It was so bulky and so heavy and so painful, that I gave up for another ten months.
Until last week. I pulled it out and hacked it into 4 pieces. I ripped out every stinking quilting stitch that a wrestled with months ago, basted it again, quilted and bound all four baby quilts in three days. And they are heading out to charity as we speak.
And now I have a whole shelf of my craft cupboard that is free and clear and it feels so good!
