So, completing my UFOs has been more of shushing the fussy babe, mixed in with "WTF was I thinking when I started this? " As I worked through the projects, I noticed an inner shift. Looking procrastination right in the eyes and winning a staring contest. Small quilt projects only take a day or two to sew, quilt and bind. Even when they need remedial design help they don't take too long.
Here are some lovelies that had been collecting trolls (as they say in Norway, translation: collecting dust.)
|quilting detail, batik cording inner border|
|Scrappy Trip Around the World|
|Backing of the trip; Japan prints, Kitty-San and Butterflies of Kobe by Alexander Henry, and Kaffe chrysanthemums|
|Lots of straight line quilting was perfect for this modern baby quilt.|
|The backing flannel is just right, as is the striped bias binding from my sister Pam, and my little tag with a thimble.|
|"Nacho Pussy" quilt.|
|5 yr old UFO remade into Cobblestones, with elephant flannel back. Kaffe stripes.|
It looks like my resolution is to lean in for more kisses rather than shush the baby.
