|The quilt and shams Amelia and I made together in January|
I have loads of ideas stored deep in my brain, for quilts I would like to make for myself, but so far most of them have never been started.
I've been trying to figure out why. Why can I churn out quilt after quilt for other people and never finish one for myself?
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I am
I have one quilt that has remained unfinished for years....at least 5 or 6, but I can't even be sure. It is going to be a queen size scrap quilt made from all the blue & white fabrics I have collected.
Recently my mother-in-law dropped off a bag containing parts of a sampler quilt that she had started but now wants me to finish for her. I was a little stunned since a) my mother-in-law has never shown any interest in quilting or sewing in the 13+ years I have known her and b) I had no idea she had taken a 10 week quilt sampler course over the winter at my local quilting store. I must admit she did a great job choosing the fabrics, and the pattern is quite pretty even if it's not to my personal taste.
So that leads me to my idea. What if I make myself a deadline, with you as my witness? What if I tell you that I will have both of these quilts finished by July 1 and that I will have to do a follow-up post to prove it?
Will you agree to be my deadline enforcement committee? If you do, I think it will work.
Wish me luck.
