I am one of those people who is goal orientated. Once I start a project, I have to complete it before I start another project. There have been several times lately when I finished a quilt and didn't know what to do. I went blank at starting another project, had nothing in mind, and couldn't decide what to do next.
It is not a feeling I like, so I have started a new way of thinking. Right now I have one quilt in blocks on my design wall, one quilt "to be built" with fabric already selected, and another quilt where I just have the pattern selected. When I finish this current project, I won't have the "lost feeling" that I have had before, wondering what to start next. I have been known to waste days trying to figure out what to create next.
This makes me feel more like a real quilter, as I notice many quilters have many Works in Progress going at once. I sort of have that going now, and it feels good.
I just had to let someone know that I am beginning to feel like a real quilter.
