Good Morning, Quilters!
I was just looking through my Quilt Notebook…Remember The Quilt Notebook Series?
I pieced this quilt, Boxes and Vines (my own design) in 2010.
I added the appliqué in 2012…(It was one of my Big Three Quilts in 2012–See Notebook Series: Setting Priorities)
And then it languished…
Why, oh why?
Some quilts are Six Year quilts--I am working on a Baltimore Album Quilt that will take me more than six years and I’m fine with that.
But Boxes and Vines is NOT a Six Year Quilt…
I really like this quilt, so that’s not the problem…
I know how to do the next step, so that’s not the problem…(Skills Inventory–Quilt Notebook Series)
If I had to be completely honest, the reason I have let this quilt languish for six years…
After the quilt was in my lap for weeks of appliqué, it needed to be ironed and….
I HATE IRONING!
Saying it out loud…I hear how ridiculous that sounds!
I pulled it out this weekend and stitched the final border…
(Still haven’t ironed it.) ***Sigh*****
What about YOU?
Is there some part of the process that holds YOU back?
Is it as silly as ironing?
We’d LOVE to hear!
