Quilting For The Impatient

Remember all of this beautiful fabric I got for my birthday? I’m way ahead of my normal quilting schedule (3.5 years for the last one) and have already sewn together a few sections of this newest one. The pattern I am using is unlike anything I’ve ever done before (which isn’t saying much seeing as this is only my second official quilt). About 15 individual sections are completed and then sewn together to form the quilt top.

So it’s great for people like me who want instant gratification-I can fool myself into thinking I’ve accomplished something even though I’ve only completed 3 sections thus far. I’m on such a roll that I should be able to open my quilting business in about 47 years.

Love your fabric! This is such a great idea to do it in sections! I want to make a quilt this year too...this makes it seem less intimidating! Thanks for sharing!

When you are done with yours can you come finish the one I started...16 years ago?

I am still "working" on my first quilt... I started it 9 years ago. I started a new one 2 months ago, but all that means is buying the fabric.... sO I guess I am saying you are doing a GREAT JOB!
