Do you have a quilt you’ve always wanted to make? Maybe it’s more challenging…may be it requires a new technique. I have a Quilting Bucket list and I am afraid if I don’t start one of those quilts it just is never going to get done. Here’s what I am doing…want to play along? I certainly don’t have anytime to start a new project…my sewing room is loaded with projects that need to get done and things I just plain wish were finished…but for one day, each month, I am ignoring all of it. I am going to work on something from my bucket list for one allotted sewing time be that 10 minutes or two hours. I started last month.
Here’s what I am going to work on…
The quilt is from Quilters Newsletter Magazine the Feb/March 2010 issue. The quilt is Hawaiian Sunset 1845. I have loved this quilt for ages. I have wanted to make it and always put other things in front of it. Well that is changing…at least a little bit. I am going to do one thing each month to make this quilt happen. Maybe I’ll only get one step cut out. Maybe I’ll only sew 10 flying geese units. I just want to start something. So last month I collected all the fabric…maybe not all but enough to get me started.
…that makes me one step closer to finishing this quilt. For this month…maybe I’ll sew a few nine patches….whatever it is, I am one step closer that I was a day ago. I am hoping all those steps will eventually lead to a finished quilt. Leave a comment here if you want to play along. Maybe we can to a linky party or something. Give me some ideas…any quilt can be started with just one step. Tackling big projects one step at a time is What Works for Me.
