I was reading a post on Janet’s site about her Quilter’s ADD and while usually I manage to keep pretty focused by having projects in different stages so I can choose to piece, bind, or quilt what I usually struggle with is the desire to start new projects.
I’ve had those pink and brown stars and pinwheels up and off and up on the design wall way too long and although I’m very anxious to start a new project I’m going to make myself get that top assembled first.
Through the summer and into September I’d also been binding at a much slower rate and as a result, my stack of quilts needing binding was staying in that 8 – 12 range. For now, I’m trying to get up each morning and trim a quilt, make a binding, and machine stitch it before I do anything else. That will ensure a steady stream of quilts waiting for hand stitching in the evening. I’ve also had offers of help from other HeartStrings members so if needed, I can take some to our October 31st sew-in.
So before I give in and start a new quilt — I’m going up to work on assembling those blocks.
