I feel I have, for a number of reasons, not been as productive
as I should have liked over this past year with my quilt making, I am
determined that this year will be different, hence the title
of my post.
I do have a finished top now for Matt
measuring 78" x 84" I don't intend to attempt to quilt this myself.
Because of the size I couldn't photograph on my design wall so here it is under
the Japanese Maple tree in the garden.
This can count as the beginning of my dedicated quilting year.
A long awaited task has been to make a start on sorting all
my small scrap containers, fabric leftovers have been thrown into these
without any organisation whatsoever.
I have sorted one only right now
measuring 10" x 8" with 4 and 1/2" depth
so pulled and sorted neatly I have
an assortment of small and large pieces and the same for wide and narrow strips.
whether to have a container for each colour, that's going to be tricky
with only six containers although I do have a few oblong large boxes
but they're not very deep. I'm tempted to take the easy way out
and go with the size of the piece, small medium or large.
There were some very small pieces and I have those in what I call
my Smidgy Bits box
Apart from the above all I have had the energy to do is a stitch a few hexagons
a little colouring
from this book
and photograph hibiscus
I have a busy week with dental and hospital appointments but I'll be setting
time aside to plan new quilts.
See you soon
