Focusing on one project…Not likely to happen.

It is not possible for me to focus on one project.  Just can’t happen.  Sometimes I do better than others, but this past weekend, I was all over the place.  I need to work on my One Monthly Goal, and I did, but not nearly enough.  I would quilt a few inches and go on to something else.

This weekend, the quilt guild has an all day workshop for machine quilting that Lynn and I are going to.  I need to prepare some practice sandwiches.  It should take like 15 minutes to do a bunch of them.  Did I get it finished.  Nope.  I got a few done and my mind wandered to something else.  I went back to piecing the quilt above.  I have no idea what this is going to look like and I over complicated things (even though it does not look complicated).  I put it on my design wall and was initially going to have columns of 30.  Then I changed to 26, but did not adjust on my design wall.  Normally it would not be hard, but the colors go down/up down up, so I can’t just grab the next 26.  Every other row I have to work from the bottom up or the colors will look goofy.  When I get it all pieced it will make sense, I hope.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. Just do what makes you happy… that’s what quilting is all about!! If I would HAVE to finish a project before I started another it would be stressful , why quilt then as there’s enough stress in this world.

  2. I can’t do one thing at a time, either. This morning I cut some squares for my Christmas quilt, but I couldn’t stick with it long enough to get some to go around the stocking. I hate cutting out bunches of things. All this might explain why I’m a scrappy quilter. LOL

  3. Looks like in the good company of flitters here. Like a butterfly, I flit from one sweet flower to the next and have a taste of each then coming back to the first till it’s all done. Even my friends who quilt diligently, flit. I think it’s part of the creative process.
