I've had a very unproductive week so far. It is one of those weeks, where everything I touch seems to go wrong. It is frustrating as I have a lot of projects I could be getting on with...but I feel like I have lost my confidence. I know this is silly, but there you go.
Last week was good. I managed to make good progress with the Etoiles Rouge block of the week. I managed to do some catching up, by sewing and quilting 12 blocks - so I am now only 6 weeks behind. I thought a while before taking on this project - not because I thought the piecing was beyond me, but because I was worried about quilting such a large quilt - there will be 49 blocks. I have managed to quilt large quilts before with my tiny harp space, but it isn't fun. This is the first project I have tackled as QAYG. So far, I am happy. There is something about knowing I haven't a huge quilting job to face at the end that is making the project more enjoyable. I will probably wait until next week before sewing more blocks as I will then have all the block patterns for another full row.
I have signed up for the International Miniature Quilt Exchange being hosted by the Quilt Show. I have been paired with a lovely lady from Colorado in the US. I think it will be fun and will give me the challenge of working on a small scale.
Happy quilting, all! xx
