Yes, I did sew today

On and off I read about people being in a quilting slump – I find for myself the more I get done the more motivated I am to work…so having not sewn anything in the last week or so I haven’t really been motivated to quilt but today I turned on the sewing machine and worked on assembling the blocks to Adam’s Boxed Squares. Of course it doesn’t help that assembling blocks into tops is one of my least favorite tasks so it’s easy to procrastinate.

Another motivating factor for me are my lists – so here’s the new one. Since I’ve been traveling this month and I’ll be traveling again in May, I’m going to try and accomplish the following by May 31st.

  • Quilt 10 tops
  • Bind quilts – I have 8 here that need binding plus once I start quilting that number will climb so lets set this goal at 10 quilts.
  • Complete Adam’s Boxed Squares tops — I have to assemble what’s on the design wall, make blocks for another 3 rows and assemble them, and put a border on it.
  • Make more QAYG blocks for Australia – I have until the end of April for this HeartStrings project
  • Make a set of 48 log cabin blocks from my strings.

Once I get going I should pick up some steam!

  1. Good luck with your steam gathering!
    I am stagnant at everything at present. I have done some Spring cleaning in Autumn, lol, I have purchased the ingredients to make a cake, & I have fabric chosen for a quilt for a friend. In the meantime I found a nice book to read! I really need a Kindle!

  2. Hi Mary, I just know youwill achieve all this, as you say, once you get back into the swing, you roll along quite nicely and get things done. Well done on the new list. Whew, me? I’m exhausted just reading it. lol Janet
