Do you remember by niece-in-law Louise? I blogged about her first quilt here, a small Double Wedding Ring. She's back with a baby quilt for a friend, and of course it's a Drunkard's Path. It's still rough around the edges as she's struggling with that quarter inch. But I so admire her willingness to just dive in. To her, one pattern is like another and you just follow the directions. There's a lesson here for all of us, I think. Especially me...
I've shown Louise some of my quilt tops and she wants to know why they aren't finished... good question. Did I have a coherent answer? Not really. No excuse. Too lazy to quilt? Scared of ruining the top by trying to quilt it? Hit a design wall regarding borders? We've all been there and done that.
2011 is a finishing year for me. I'm determined and mentally ready. There will be finished quilts flowing from my sewing room. I will work only on projects that are started already. This is my promise to myself. I am resolved.
