Actually talking to myself. Out loud.
Having to tell myself "No New Starts!"
So I pulled out this quilt.
The top and these two borders have been this way since late September of 2010.
I loved working on these blocks…
So why has it been folded up in a bin for all this time?
I have no excuse.
I decided to press it and get back to work on it. First up…dealing with that potentially wavy border on the left side. I can see the ripples in it…and I'm pretty sure that it is 1/2" too long, but I think the larger problem is that the 1/2 square triangles border is where the problem begins.
However…I'm not sure I care to try to remedy that…it might be too much work.
(will it quilt out? )
And that mistake in the upper right corner? Not sure I care to fix that either.
Perfection is not my issue……
But laziness is.
Now in addition to the wonky border, I have another problem
This quilt is 90" square
It has a vine and leaves that need to be appliquéd all the way around.
I'm not so sure that I care to hold that whole quilt in my lap.
I'm thinking it will be a big pain in my ass.
Should I even admit that I don't want to have to fold the thing up every time I'm done working on it?
So this is what I'm pondering.
I'm thinking I should do the appliqué on each border and then join them to the quilt. I can leave extra stem hanging off the end and join the ends after I sew the border on.
Do me a favor and leave me a comment…let me know how you would proceed. I need to get this thing done.
