|Shelley took this photo at the Augusta, Maine quilt show. Check out the other scrumptious quilts she photographed at http://redquilts.blogspot.com/!|
I suspect it has something to do with so many quilting irons in the fire. My friend, Paula, of Paula's Quilting Pantry, sent me a list of her unfinished projects. She only has SIX projects that she started in previous years. I think I might have quadruple or quintuple that number (or more, but I don't know the "...uple" word for it). Hmmmmm.....
The blocks really are lovely, though, and I have a design in my head for all those Suzies complete with framing, sashing and pinwheel cornerstones and a lovely fall (because Suzie's theme was fall and I won her at our Thanksgiving meeting) border print to spruce up her setting. It should be a fine quilt, even to a Sunny Suzie hater like myself.
She's not my only long-overdue project. I've got a "To Do" list a mile long. My husband is deployed, so most of my evenings are available to work. It's time to "put the big girl panties on." I'm not going to live forever and I don't want my kids left with the unenviable burden of disposing untold millions of unfinished projects. Not to mention them selling Suzie and her cut-out pieces at a yard sale for a quarter. Can you feel the collective quilting world gasp at THAT prospect!? Can you feel Suzie's silent disapproval beneath those countenance-covering bonnets?! Very disturbing! I'm taking her completion very seriously from now on!
