Not sure why this is, but each time I have to decide whether to keep it longer, or to give it away, or to actually start working on it.
Sometimes I am ready to let go of a partly finished project. If it seems that I just have no more interest in it, and can't really get excited about it, then maybe it's time to move it along to someone else who might want to finish it and either use it or give it to someone else.
On Friday, I
Patti had been talking about how she has several of these stacks, and so that is probably why I thought of them.
I kept them out and thought about what sort of settings would be nice to use. When I had the opportunity to get together with some other quilters for a sewing day on Saturday, they are what I took along to work on.
The blocks are from last year and use pastel fabrics designed by Robyn Pandolph, and also Three Sisters Aviary grouping.
(I'm sorry that all my quilts look like the shape of the province of Saskatchewan. I don't have a design wall and usually lay out things on the floor, so the perspective gets skewed. I've been thinking lately about turning one wall into a place where I can take better photos, but have to rearrange a bunch of stuff in the sewing room... soon!)
I've used this setting before, but with 6 blocks.
These were Kansas Troubles,
To do the 12 block version, you just sew 2 sets of the six block version and sew them together.
I was using up all my leftover pieces of fabrics as well, so I ended up piecing a lot of the larger rectangles. I hope to take in tomorrow and find that perfect piece of fabric to use for the border.
Then, the Big decision... whether or not to quilt it myself!
