Anita White. It reminds me of our home and I love the way it turned out. I now need to block it; I think I will add a braid to finish the outside.
On the quilting front, I pulled out a pack of Moda Turnovers....which are really just 6" squares cut in half on the diagonal....in a Jan Patek line....can't remember which one. Then I added some triangles, background and border from my stash to create this quilt. I used a You Tube from Missouri Star Quilt Company for the instructions. I felt rather righteous pulling the whole quilt from stash!
That being said, I do have some stitching goals for the year. I want to focus on my projects, not just jump from one thing to the next. Not to say that I can't have more than one thing going at a time, just that I complete what I am working on. I would like to buy only things that I need to finish projects that I have on hand........borders, backgrounds....you know what I mean.
I would like for my sewing area to look neat and tidy. That does not mean hauling everything out and straightening it all up again. I have done that several times recently. What it means is using things up......those kits and BOMs, etc. that I have stockpiled.
That will mean that my workspace becomes less cluttered. I really don't need any more books, patterns or gadgets. I have plenty of that stuff. I just want to get the things that I purchased with such high expectations done!
I do plan to participate in some online challenges, but I will pull the fabrics to do those from stash. One that I am going to join in on is Just Takes 2. Yesterday I pulled some fabrics and plan to get started on this project tomorrow.
Whew! I guess that is enough rambling for tonight.
