I don't think I'll ever finish this blue and yellow quilt ~ it was awfully ambitious for a first patchwork but I fell in love with the pattern and didn't even think about the l-o-n-g process of sewing all the pieces by hand (agh, the naivety of youth). All those curves, what was I thinking? I suppose I could quilt it as is, but it would have to be for an extremely thin person!
Oh the Grandmother's Garden quilt which I started in February 2004, I had great enthusiasm for it last year but lost interest (again). I 've only completed the sixth row of ten "flowers", and I had plans for ten rows. I've finished the "flowers", it's just the boring cream hexagons which I'm not excited about.
With the blue quilt below, I managed to make three quilts from seven lots of half-metre fabrics so this is the third incomplete piece. It's perfect for one person to snuggle on the couch in front of the TV, and I already have a recipient in mind so I have to start thinking about machine quilting. Ah, maybe for Christmas 2014?
I started the snowball quilt in mid 2011 and finished it during the summer of 2012 using three lots of Moda Buttercup charm packs. With more sewing experience, the pieces fitted together so I'm rather proud of this quilt top. So much so, it deserves two photos!
The boarder did cause some frustrations, but I've learned to just leave it and return to the project with a clear head.
So a big sigh with my loss of enthusiasm with these quilts, I hope dear reader that you can boast about how you finish all your projects.
Quilts I have finished ~ the pink is the very first I made for my Mum, the blue Ohio Stars for my Dad and the half triangles for me!
