Well…here’s what I should be working on, but I’ve gotten a little side tracked.
This is my Roll, Roll Cotton Ball quilt mystery from Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville. This quilt has been really testing my “quilting ADD”. I love mysteries….I love working on large challenging quilts…but I HATE never ending LONG steps.
I am supposed to be sewing 344 triangles to these strips. I am supposed to be sewing the 600 half square triangles into 5 pieced rows..that’s 120 five inch rows. That’s a lot of sitting in on place….it’s a lot of concentrated time.
So yesterday instead of focusing on what I should be doing….I machine quilted a quilt. I machine quilted a Christmas tree skirt. I added borders to a quilt top. In between all this I sewed a few triangles together…..Actually I sit there and force mystery to sew 25 at a time.
UGH! I wish the triangles were all sewn together. I haven’t been enjoying this mystery as much as I usually to. The steps are SO long and SO much repeat. Hopefully after Friday’s clue is revealed, it will be enough to charge me into sewing those triangles together. I should have lots of fun things to show you this week….because my “quilting ADD” is getting me doing LOTS of projects…just not my Roll, Roll Cotton Ball.
