    getting there finally

    This is getting closer but it was a lot of work and I am so tired of it, I want to do something else. I guess I will put it away for a while and finish it next year. I loved the fabricName:  IMG_0980.jpg

    It's beautiful! How about taking a break and working on something else and then coming back to it? I've done that often rather than having my quilting become such a chore

    Wow! That is a beautiful quilt in progress. Anxious to see the finished project but I understand how you feel about getting tired of working on it. It may be fun for you when you get it out again and start working on it.

    Oh, wow, is that ever gorgeous fabric!!!! And your pattern really is eye-catching. I can understand needing a break from even the prettiest fabric . No project has held my attention 100% of the time.

    Take a break...don't put it away...you are close to being done, right? If you get it finished you will have a beautiful completion, not some UFO languishing away in a folded pile.

    ditto....plus the black edging is making it "over the top".

    I would never pick up that big floral print, but it's absolutely perfect in that pattern. Gorgeous!

    Beautiful way to look woven. I would just leave it hanging there, sew up a quick scrappy out of totally different fabric, then hit it again fresh. I'm a rather sloppy sewer/quilter so, when I get tired of something I just get it done. Your's is too pretty to struggle thru, take a break.

    when I've reached the point of enough, I pick up something that gives me almost immediate gratification. Lately that has meant bags. A day and I have something I can look and admire and then get back to work. By the way it is absolutely breathtaking.

    Well, I fell for this one big time. I found all the fabrics on Fabric.com and I ordered it. I love flowers! Now to get the pattern. I wonder if I really need it since I can see some of the sections I want to cut differently. Why do I do this to myself? If I could only just make the pattern, I would get a lot more accomplished!

    I quilted this quilt for a shop sampler--you are doing a great job. The shop owner, an accomplished quilter, said it looked like it would be fairly fast and easy but really wasn't!
