I don't know why I ever quit working on mine... but I did. As you can plainly see, I adopted an alternate setting from the pattern for my blocks. I had entitled mine "Mountain Day" and only lack four more rows from having a top that measures 60" x 84". I have dragged it out, with all of the components and rulers, and placed it front and center. If Ann's is done and ready to be quilted, then mine will be too!
This was Ann's second show and tell that same day. The sigh and groan that eminated from me this time was much more audible and dramatic; I do know why I never kept working on this one... it was HARD... I gave up in utter frustration after one completed block! Again, a class that she and I took together, this one two years ago. Always inspiring me, Ann's actions on this front (twelve blocks seems like a reasonable goal!) convinced me to drag out what I had stashed away. Here it is:
The working title given to this one was "Starburst Spin"... in honor of Starburst jellybeans. I can dust this one off and bring these candy colors to life. All I need to do is dedicate my mind and spirit, I can do that, in honor of my friend; she has always left me SEW inspired! Thanks, Ann, you never fail to bring out the best in me. I have weekend plans (Friday/Saturday) to stitch away while being on a fairly close-to-home retreat. My projects this time have self-selected; wish me luck. Hold me accountable. My quilt teacher will, I'm giving her permission to be tough on me... after all, it's her birthday!
Life is Good!
