Always plenty to do… I feel like this is my mantra, as I say it so often.
If you’re a quilter, you know that almost every task takes longer than you expect. From designing to sewing the final stitch on the label, it’s easy to underestimate how long it will take. Part of that is because the tasks are so familiar, and most are not especially hard. But quilts have so many pieces, and tasks are repeated so many times. Even if you only work on one project at a time, there are hundreds of steps from start to finish. And if you’re like me, with several projects in process, well, there is always plenty to do!
A short list:
1) Sew binding on traditional class medallion. (As you know, there are several steps to this, too…)
2) Cut and make binding for bright class medallion, and then attach and finish it.
3) Make back for XOXO quilt.
4) Piece batting for XOXO quilt.
5) Load and quilt XOXO quilt.
6) Choose fabric, cut and make binding, attach and finish it for XOXO quilt.
7) Trim hemmed edges off big tablecloth, which I’ve decided to quilt.
8) Make back for tablecloth, and so on and so on…
9) Check donation quilt for readiness to quilt.
10) Get donation quilt ready, as it won’t actually be “ready to quilt” as marked.
11) Load and quilt donation quilt.
12) Square round robin mini medallion.
13) Choose and cut backing fabric and cut flannel or batting for it.
14) Quilt mini medallion.
OH MY! There is so much more I could put on this list. And this is just current projects, not aspirations.
Yes, as always, there is plenty to do! What’s on your list?
