Wow, 4 months have gone by since I added anything to this blog. Shame on me. I WILL try to do better. The Kansas City Sewing & Quilt Expo is coming up in October!! I have mulled over the list of classes, wrote down what classes seemed interesting, wrote them all down. Hmmmmm... I do NOT have enough time or money to do all of these :( So after careful consideration I have chosen one class to take. It is called Magic Stax with Debby Kratovil. I also tried to figure out how to make the quilt on my own. I did not succeed but that is OK, because I have enjoyed the experience, and I have made a table top or a small wall hanging in the process. I will see if I can put a picture up soon. Ok, picture taken and lets see how to do this. Well the format I chose put the picture up there! lol Anyway, it is up!

This morning has been momentous. I have found alot of my UFO's and took pictures of them. Usually I make the tops, set them asside (not completely done sometimes) and then get distracted with another quilt pattern. I never really seem to go back to the tops, though. After finding these and laying them, looking them over, remembering what was going during that process make me wonder why I have not completed them. I want to put the pictures up and write an account of them. Let's see what happens.

This is a paper piecing project. I was to pick the border first and then choose my fabric for the inner pieces. I didn't do this, I did the center fabric and pieces first, and am now trying to find a border for it.

I have found this fabric in my stash and am debating about it. It is awfully busy and I am not sure about using it.

I am going to save this and then get some more work done. See you soon. Trish

Just finish more than you start! You will always be ahead that way.

Good Advice!! I will give it a try!! Certainly the method that I am using isn't working!
