How many unquilted quilt tops do you have in your sewing room? Two? Ten? More?
This is the point where I have to openly admit to being a block piecing addict. This is the part where I need to look at what is in my Go-Go Studio and really take stock on what is there. What has been completed, the what the Heck was I thinking and the why did I start that one? I have found literally hundreds of blocks...HUNDREDS of blocks. They are pieced perfectly and look amazing but when will I stitch them up into an actual quilt top...I have no clue...I have other blocks I am looking forward to making
I have a problem!
Isn't that what happens every time we reorganize, clean up, clear out or move to a new house and have to pack up everything that is on the room, only to find 25 unquilted tops, 3,256 blocks created from at least 432 different unidentable fabrics ( good luck to you trying to match that one lovely floral print you found on clearance seven years ago now).
I had to remind myself of what a finished quilt top even looks like! I found these within three nano seconds of walking into the studio. There are more hiding in nooks and crannies or this and other rooms in the house. It is shameful...
This was my first quilt along with p.s.i quilt. It is Katie Jump Rope Fabrics and really just delightful! I started meandering and then seemed to have lost interest. I will have to pick it up again and finish it before Summer! This is the perfect picnic quilt!
This one was for the Jacqueline Steves Maggi's First Dance Sew Along last year. I taught myself how to thread paint!
You can find my tips for thread painting here. I used Aurifil thread in a variety of colors and weights. I loved the results. Still unsure how to quilt this one so it sits in the pile of to be quilted later...
This one is a not bound one. I made this one for a swap. The pattern is by +Sarah Fielke . It is for my friend +Jules Procrasticraft ( if she is still speaking to me...LOL). I pieced and quilted this lovely quilt using Aurifil 50wt.
It may or may not have binding by this Summer.
So that is my true confession for the day.
I feel better about sharing my piecing problem and maybe just maybe I will be able to garb some blocks and FINISH a quilt sometime this year...after I make just a few more blocks...
What part of quilt making is your favorite?
