Last year, over the January holidays I had an idea.
I love mini quilts and have for many years.
Deciding a mini quilt was a worthwhile holiday project, I looked through my block books. Choosing just one was impossible and that's when I had a light bulb moment.
Now I'm sure you know that feeling, you're on holidays and you imagine yourself starting and completing multiple projects.
You set yourself a goal which in reality is going to be difficult to achieve and don't let this unpleasant truth intrude on the moment of blissful planning.
Of course I decided to challenge myself
- pick blocks starting with a different letter of the alphabet,
- choose different layouts and sizes for an eclectic mix
- make one each fortnight.
Sounds achievable and fun!
By year end I'd have 26 mini quilts or blocks to display on a wall.
How cool to have a mini quilt alphabet!
Are you surprised and shocked to learn I fell well short of my goal!
I still love the idea and since I have some free time with the cancellation of classes, pop-up shops and postponement of AQC I may just make a few more.
