Two Down, One Scraped? Who Rah!!

In a recent post I bemoaned the stress I had created for myself, starting three quilts around the same time. I usually don’t  jump back and forth between several  projects. It’s easy to get into that frame of mind, there is so much beautiful fabric available, it’s hard to control the urge to start a new project with every new wonderful fabric you see or buy. It reminds me of a 2 year old running from one toy to the next until he has emptied his whole  toy box. I always feel that I’m 4 or 5 projects behind.

The point I’m rather  slow in making is this, it is a great feeling to finish one and start your next. I it is it is a sense of satisfaction to have completed really good feeling to finish one and move to the next. I’m feeling a little cocky and relieved too, I finished two of them.  Woo Rah!!

At this point I  had  just about decided to scrap the 3rd, I just wasn’t  feeling it, at a creative stand off.  Glad  I kept going, cause I got over the hump and find that now I like it.  Np pictures yet I’m quilting it. I did use commercial fabrics on it, maybe I’m a bit prejudiced about that .

So I’ll post pics of the first one and next two in my following my post.
