Something New to try and get out of the Funk and One Monthly Goal

Yes, I know a petal is missing.  This is supposed to be a pointsettia.  I am finding it quite challenging to get it together.  I have laid it out countless tiems today, unsuccesfully.  I a confident that I will get it at some point.  Sometimes challenging things are good.  I have a halloween quilt wall hanging that i want to hang on my front door and I would liek to hang this there too.  However, I need to get it figured out before that can happen.  I will get there.

So, for my One monthly Goal, I need to create a test block for this quilt.  I know it does 20171001_195157_resizednot look like much, but these are such complicated blocks.  I have had the stuff for this quilt for months and I am scared to try and do one of these blocks.

So, this is a special quilt.  All the dogs will be wearing Ohio State Sweaters and I will create a border with Footballs and the block “O”.

For a long time I have been wanting to make someone special to me a quilt, but could not figure out the right design.  It needed the quilt to say Me (crazy Dog Lady) and him, Huge Ohio State Fan.  I think this will come out cute as soon as I can get past my fear of this block with a million pieces.  If it is to difficult, then I am back to ground zero (and I already bought all the fabic).  Hoping it works out.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. Is it cut and pieced or paper pieced? It looks like a terrific candidate for paper piecing. If it is traditional, just go slow and measure twice before you cut. You can handle this one block at a time.😄 I felt that way about the splendid sampler at first, but I started cutting and before I knew it, we were done!

  2. Such a special project–and wonderful idea personalizing the sweaters! I definitely understand your nerves (I’m the same way when trying something new/challenging), but I find that starting is often the hardest part. Can’t wait to see your progress! 🙂

  3. Looks like tracing the “P” on the background fabric would aid in placement – LOL – Don’t you just love advice? I am having a fun day fighting with USPS – gets rid of all my pent up frustrations!!!
    Out of the funk and into the frying pan. No the doggie quilt looks like fun! Hang in there. Funks usually last a short time – usually spending money helps me get out of a funk! Have a great day Lori

      1. No it is the dumb Post Office here in the country and Logitech bluetooth keyboard and mouse, BUT I finally have them paired correctly thx to a smart technical person! Hugs – I have been sewing now and relaxing waiting for my coffee to finish. Tried a cookie (weather changes and cravings start) but the one bite started to break out my geographic tongue – so forget that! Heck I could eat a pizza and feel worse! LOL – Sick Cajun/Yankee humor today! You keep on keeping on you are doing fine!
