Quilting Woes

What do you do when you fall out of love with a project?  My first two quilts were a real pleasure to make at each stage but my current quilt has taken forever and it's still not finished.  I think the problem is that I just don't love it any more.  That's not the quilt's fault of course, I've just developed a bad attitude to it and haven't done any homework on it since my last sewing class.  (Can you sense the Grumpiness?)  

I had experimented with union jacks before in a smaller size but scaling that up even to a smallish sized quilt has been a head scratching exercise!  Perhaps the process of adding the quilting will be soothing and I'll get my mojo back again.  Or perhaps I'll allow myself to get a little bit distracted by a cute bottle I've just washed up....

Yup, a bit of lace left over from something else, some beads, a bit of green yarn to string through the top border and some cheery daffodils to make it look like spring has arrived in the Week Day Home.

Simple, but jolly!

  1. That lacey trim is gorgeous! Perhaps some clever quilting on the Jack might reignite your passion. Btw, thanks for stopping by my blog.
