What parts of the quilting process do you ..well...AVOID like the plague? As much as I ADORE pieced backs, most the time I SLOG thru piecing them. I am much better at loading quilts on the frame. As with most everything else in life, the more you DO a task, the easier it becomes. Right now I'm wrestling with labels ( the making of them, not the sewing them on the quilt) and borders. ick Ick ICK! I have completed half of the blocks for the sew along. You see, I'm REALLY a piecer at heart. If I ever win the lottery, after I tithe, hire a full time housekeeper and purchase a long arm, I will find someone to put borders on my quilts and load them on the frame!
So, with all those blocks done,hankering to DIVE into the other half, I will require myself to:
1. make and pin a label on a completed quilt destined for the mail
2. finish the side borders on a scrappy bargello ( I need to try that panto again to fully embed it in my brain)
3. load said scrappy bargello and get to quilting it
4. THEN and only THEN may I start piecing the next set of blocks. I'm very anxious to show it to you. But, you know, just showing you ONE kind of blocks will not hack it! You need to see the WHOLE top to know if you want to sew along or not. I better get going! I have CHORES to do!
