I have a confession to make.
I have quilty commitment issues.
More commonly referred to as quilty ADD. :)
Exhibit A. My Katie Jump Rope Single Girl Quilt.
If you remember, I jumped head first into The Single Girl Support Group like I had nothing to lose. I chose fabric (Katie Jump Rope!), pressed said fabric, made templates, and then traced and cut out fabric for a Queen size quilt, and approximately 576 pieces of fabric later, I fizzled. I lost all motivation and set the entire thing aside--I had Single Girl commitment issues. Then one day, out of no-where, my SG mojo kicked back in and I had to finish a block--just one. A little quilty motivation, you could say.
I decided to use left over scraps from my Sliced Coins Quilt and paired them with some Kona Med-Gray. And, quilty peeps, I seriously love this mini!
I really like the simple, modern feel of the Single Girl pattern and wanted to continue that over into my quilting. So it seemed like straight-line quilting was the way to go with this mini. I love the texture and feel the quilted lines give off, especially with the matching gray thread.
Does anyone else enjoy hand sewing binding like I do?!?! It quite possibly could be my favorite step of the entire quilting process! Maybe it's knowing you are "this close" to a finish or that it is just plain relaxing--either way, I could do it all day long.
There you have it, my SG motivation.
Anyone else like that? Do you find yourself having to finish just one block and use it as quilty motivation?
