It's been difficult (impossible) to stay on track with the new quilt, I knew it would. All the wedges are cut out, sitting on the table right under my nose so I cannot fail to see them. The plan was to sew them together over the weekend, but my head was full of 'I wonder what it will look like in red'.
I have no willpower! It doesn't take much to lure me from one thing to the next. Dare I tell you about the other two red quilts I started earlier this year certain they would be completed in 'next to no time'. They also sit in prominent display, a constant reminder 'I must finish that'. I refuse to put them in the cupboard which has been the fate of other uncompleted quilt tops. Those tops rarely even register on the list of things to do.
Now the 5th and final Red Club project is at the printers, perhaps there will be time to finish at least one. The inspiration for the final project is from my favourite book Childhood Treasures by Merikay Waldvogel. I think I could happily make every quilt in this book. The Schoolhouse (p87) was earmarked immediately, the fabrics bought, the pattern drafted and then nothing. The moment was lost, the fabrics swallowed up in the stash ages ago.
