I drug this top out of obscurity. I started it in Virginia.
PROBLEM #1: Memory Loss
WHAT WAS I THINKING? Was there any rhyme or reason to this? If I were to do it now I would place the squares differently. I know, there is still time...but No way.....it is together and that is what it will be.
PROBLEM #2 Memory Loss
I have a few more squares to make in order to make it longer. It took me forever, I know...some of you could just pick up where you left off and you are thinking...simple Log Cabin. Well...for some of us it takes a little longer....(not the sharpest knife). But it took me a few times of ripping out to get the square correct. Now I just need to add them. I kept thinking to myself, why didn't you just finish this when you were working on it.
No name calling should be allowed when trying to pick up where you left off.
Now this quilt was started in Samoa, I veered from the original pattern and had put borders on it and left off the horseshoes. So I ripped off the borders and put the horseshoes on it and thought....What was I thinking????? in Samoa...I now want to follow the pattern. HUMMMMM
PROBLEM #4 Memory Loss
Be sure to read all of the directions....or you just might cut the squares the wrong size. YEP!!!!! Not the sharpest knife. I had machine stitched two blocks...went to cut to size..... Once again...no name calling allowed!!!
PROBLEM #5 MEMORY LOSS
So...you take your unfinished project, bundle it up...it has been forgotten. You need a piece of fabric and you spot it in the bundled project and think (because you have forgotten)...oh I will just use a little of this. When it comes time to go back to said project, you are now missing or don't have enough fabric. Remember...no name calling allowed.
As you can see, it is so much more worth it to finish the project right then...at least to the top stage....Yep....it is easier said than done and I applaud anyone who does this.
I think.....don't take my word for it because sometimes projects just appear but I only have about two tops besides the ones above that are in the unfinished stage....That is my goal...to get those to the top stage and possibly done.
Yep...You heard it here...GET UR DONE!!!
