It’s like writer’s block. I feel stuck.
This is my Indian Orange Peel quilt. I want to enter it in the piecing category this fall.
But, I am so tired of pulling paper. and it has to be removed before I can quilt it.
A couple months ago, the whole back was paper. Now, it’s just five arcs and a corner. The problem is that the instructions said to baste each block, all the way around. That long basting stitch makes the paper around the edges hard to remove. I can remove the basting, or spend the extra time on the paper. They’ll both take as long, so I’ve been spending extra time on the paper. And, I will need to go back with a pair of tweezers and get the little tiny bits that my fingers wouldn’t grasp.
But, then, I’m going to quilt it and get it ready. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
And, I want to do another piece, another thread sketch on silk. I have the supplies. I’ve picked a theme. Just need to get my behind in gear and get my paper sketch started.
I hope you’re not feeling the same pressure to finish anything this year. And, if you are, then you absolutely have empathy from here.
Be well and have a great Thursday.
