I've had my Winter Wonderland quilt all hand stitched up for months. Or Maybe even a year!! You can see it here.
But those border blocks have not been easy to pick back up. I felt so good about finishing up a few quilts this week, I knew it was time to dig out the box of unfinished blocks.
After some sorting out of fabrics this morning, I pieced two blocks. If I make it a goal to finish one or two of those blocks per day for the next week, they will be done. I have cut the components for the next two blocks so that tomorrow, I just have to sit and sew.
Each block is different. There's no speed piecing or cutting. So for me, it's a test of my ability to just slow down, and make 1 block at a time, maybe two like I did this morning. See, if you know me, I really like to make the most of my sewing time. If I can cut 15 blocks, then sew 15 blocks, I'm a happy camper. Cutting one block, then sewing one is a challenge.
So, I now have 12 done of 24. I'm looking forward to finishing two more tomorrow.
I'm loving all this rain. It's keeping me in my sewing room. :)
