It’s all the little finishing details that I hate the most – labels and hanging sleeves, storage bags etc – about getting a quilt ready for a show. I hope it actually gets accepted as an entry after all this. My trip to Melbourne in July depends on it.
I am so tired of this quilt – I liked making the blocks and putting things together, but it is a HUGE quilt (almost 3 metres square. What was I thinking??) and the size alone makes everything a little bit harder and take a bit longer to finish. Add to that a cat who assumes that every quilt in the house is for her personal comfort (and I don’t want to be a meanie and move her when she looks so cozy) and I don’t get much done. Much more fun to plan new quilts and flick through magazines instead.
Possible new projects
- applique blocks on a red background
- something with lots of little squares
- stripey fabric in something.
That’s as far as I’ve gotten – I’m leaning towards the red background thingy.
