Are you a procrastinator like me? When I have something that I am nervous about or really don't want to do, I blow it all out of proportion and it is this big looming ball of stress. I suddenly find myself inspired to work on anything and everything except that and I am so productive. This happened to me last week.
I had a quilt top to quilt for a friend. It was the first one I had ever done for her. I respect this woman so much. She's been quilting for something like 40 years. She knows that I have only really done meandering but she mentioned that this one repetitive place on the quilt really needed something extra. I was willing to try, but let me tell you, I was scared of that quilt.
It hung on the design wall in my bedroom for at least 2 weeks. Once I decided what to do, I had a little burst of energy and knocked it out. And then, of course, I was like "what was I so worried about?" I think it turned out okay for a first attempt at such things. The chalk still shows a bit in the pictures.
And everything turned out great, because she loved what I did. And it was done in time to send it to her Grandson for his birthday.
But during those 2 weeks, I think I quilted 6 quilts - some for me and some for Mom and one for a lady at the church.
