Sew Sundays – April 22, 2018 – Bizzy Week

Hi and Happy Sunday!

It’s been a busy week and I haven’t had much time in my sewing room…when I have had time I’ve simply been too exhausted to sew because I’m in the midst of a kitchen reno.  Between that and the blog hop, my week “vacation (from work)” has been filled every minute.

Still, I did get a bit of time to work on the Dresden Quilt – to see more about that quilt click here.

Things started as planned – I did an outline of the dresden a curved arch inside them.  Looking Good!!

But then, I came to the centre block…ye ol’ troublemaker!!

My lesson for the week – don’t rush to get something finished – especially if you are tired.  I had planned to do something spectacular with the centre block, but in my rush I forgot what it was and did something else.  It’s not that it’s a bit off or not precisely what I had intended — it’s waaaaay off what I had planned and I’m extremely not happy with the results.  I’ve spent a considerable amount of time oscillating between ripping it out and leaving it.  In the end I’m going to leave it not because “a finished quilt is better than a perfect quilt”, but more because I’m worried about damaging the fabric.  I will post pictures when the FMQ is done so you will see what I’m talking about.

I dunno, perhaps it’s me, but I feel like this quilt has a personality.  Does anyone else ever start to feel like they develop an actual relationship with their projects?  This one is like it has a mind of its own and is challenging me at every turn…sigh…

I need to keep this week’s blog short – I’m sure you will have enough to read come Monday and the start of week 2 of the Blog Hop!  Comments I received from the hop were very helpful and there were even some suggestions/requests for future posts.  Sew at some point, I will start organizing my thoughts for future posts.

Happy Sunday and I hope you spend some of it sewing…

I started quilting June 2016 after the announcement that my first grandchild would arrive February 2017. It was an instant and complete only wish I had started earlier.
