I'm up to quilting this table runner. I managed to quilt the border today and am planning to free motion the center tomorrow. Or some other day in the future. I always seem to get so busy! Quilting is magical. It always feels so different once you start to quilt. Many years ago I bought a wonderful book by Lee Cleland called "Quilting Makes the Quilt". Great book, brilliant title. Quilting really does make the quilt!
Hopefully I will finish the table runner in the next couple of days. I have been thinking about OPAM. (One Project A Month) It has been really valuable for me to be a part of OPAM. I guess I am someone who needs a shove every now and then! The most finishes I have managed in a month has been three. At the beginning of each month I think I will get more finishes this month. And then I don't. So this new month (July? Can you believe it's July?) I figured I should make more of a plan than thinking in bold italics. (I will.) I figure that I can get four finishes this month (I know, I'm not very ambitious at all!) if I make sure I get one finish a week. So, tomorrow is the 7th and.............. the table runner is almost finished! I have another table runner on the go and a shaggy quilt part done too, so, how hard could it be? And I've just written a blog post about it. More pressure! Good pressure though. Watch this space. I might just finish something. I might just finish four things!
