For anyone who doesn't have their mojo at the moment, I think it's at my house and by the way - I'm keeping it.
I started this quilt in September with a huge amount of gusto and enthusiasm. I stole the idea from Thea who was working on her own hourglass quilt at the time. I loved how hers was turning out . She managed to finish hers in November. You know when you see a quilt and think "I have the perfect fabric for that in my stash " and cant wait to start? That's what happened to me.
Along the way I made a mistake and kind of gave up on this quilt and it lurked in my unfinished pile ...and kept lurking .. and in the end it was thumbing it's nose at me and screaming "You're never going to finish me loser ". It was in good company - there were plenty of other quilts there to keep it company. At one point they were all yelling at me like an out of control football crowd.
But as part of my "I gotta finish my WIP's" vow I dragged it out last month and now it's finished. I was kinda hoping for a May finish but I'll take June.
I'm in love with this quilt and it's staying right here. Miss P snaffled the jelly roll race quilt on Monday for her place so I have room! I'm open to suggestions for names. I'm so crap at giving my quilts names.
I'm hoping for two more finishes in June. I have a gorgeous project lined up in my head to start in July if I can pull two finishes off this month. And maybe if I can finish some more stuff I can write a decent blog post again !
