Though I’ve been in a funk and not very motivated I’ve not allowed myself to stop sewing. I haven’t had the same joy in it I normally do but that’s okay I’ve managed to get one UFO and one current year start finished this weekend. That progress has actually energized me and I’m pumped to get something else finished this week – most likely a table runner. Once that is done i can plan from there. Hopefully my mojo is back by then.
I have the first week of July off and I think I’m going to allow myself the luxury of a brand new project. I think some of my funk is that I want to start something new. Now the question is what to start!
On Saturday I finally applied the binding to the quilt I finished last week.
The backing was some fun kite fabric that has been in my stash for years. The picture is pre-binding.
I’m happy how this turned out! It’s my third Happy Blocks UFO this year. I’m caught up on my Happy Blocks quilts. All three that were started last year are now finished and ready to donate. And I haven’t yet started any this year.
I also finished my Diamond Brights quilt this weekend.
The backing was a fun 60″ fabric I found in my stash. While not quite perfect this saved me from having to piece the backing. I used a wool batting. So luxurious but we are keeping this one for ourselves and hubby loves 100% wool or cotton batting. I don’t do charity quilts or baby quilts with wool batting as the extra TLC needed might not happen.
A close up of the quilting is here.
I’m glad I kept plugging way even when my mojo disappeared. Thanks to my self discipline I got two quilts finished this weekend and I have a plan for the third that could very well get done before the weekend.! If I keep this up I should to have less UFOs going into 2021 less than I did in 2020 despite all the new starts I’ve allowed myself.
