I sometimes wonder what triggers my productivity. I started this quilt in April 2013. The flying geese like units I managed to knock out “quickly” and I started in on the 9-patches. I even took it to a quilt retreat that summer, but I can find no mention of me working on it since then until last week – although it’s been on the list of UFOs to finish for both 2014 and 2015.
Anyway, last week something was triggered and I’ve spent my sewing time working on the quilt top. It’s a similar feeling to when I finally was able to knock out Orca Bay – only this time, I’ve known all along who I’m giving the quilt to.
So, what have I accomplished. #1 figuring out where I left off. #2 sewing and cutting all of the strip sets for the 9-patches. Now I’m working on the strip sets for the 25-patches. I get up and press after I sew 10 strips. Hopefully this will keep me from getting stiff and it allows me to stitch another leader/ender. For the moment I’m using another part of the quilt as my leader/ender
Perhaps next week I’ll have a quilt top to show.
In the meantime, see what others are working on over at Patchwork Times..
