My Quilt Buddy

January 27, 2011

I recently made a new life decision – I AM GOING TO SEW EVERYDAY. I will discuss that decision, and my parameters in another post. I have too many projects to complete, too many projects to begin, too much fabric on my shelves, and I must take drastic actions!

Recently, while carrying out this life decision, I was beginning to machine quilt the outer border on the first quilt that I designed, Christmas Stars. I have been working on the quilting for several years. This project has taken so long, as I could never begin each step of the process. I felt frozen from fear. I was afraid to take that first stitch, afraid that I would ruin the quilt. So each time I pick up this quilt, I would have spent months deciding how to quilt a section, and then I would work up the nerve to actually begin the quilting. So finally, after 2-years of machine quilting, I had reached the outer borders, and had gotten up the nerve to start this final stage! My decision was made, my nerves were steeled, and I was going to begin . . . today!

I ran to the kitchen to get a glass of water (always necessary to keep hydrated when taking on such a task), and when I returned, look who had arrived. Our dear cat Triscuitt decided to impede my progress. Apparently, she doesn’t care about my “life decision.” I couldn’t sew anymore because I couldn’t move the fabric. Oh well, I am sure she will move eventually.

Happy Quilting . . .

    I look forward to seeing this quilt which has caused such anguish–that is when Triscuitt decides to let you continue! Those are interesting pieces on your design wall too. And I see you have a Pfaff. I have a 2058 that I love.

    I will definitely post some pictures when it is done. I should be finished tomorrow! I love my Pfaff too. I have a Creative 2170. It is an embroidery machine, but quite frankly, I have not learning how to use it properly.

    Hi Nancy,
    Is it finished yet? Will you bring it to show and tell?
    Looking forward to seeing you.
