Congratulations Jennifer! I’m sending you an email.
Last night when I finished the Texas quilt, I was so excited to get to start my March Color Palette Challenge this morning. When I got to the sewing room a little after noon, I started picking up the leftover pieces from the Texas quilt and was going to pack it all away so I could make Vince’s quilt later. Then I thought . . why not just do it while I have everything out and the measurements are fresh on my mind. For the first Texas quilt, I had planned to set it 5 blocks across with 6 rows up and down so that would have been 30 blocks. When I decided to set it 4 x 5, I only needed 20 blocks but I had most of the segments done for the extra 10 blocks. That meant I only needed to make segments for 10 more blocks and then assemble all the blocks. I could do it! And, I did it!
The corner blocks are made for the wide border. I think I can get this top assembled completely tomorrow and then maybe on Tuesday get started on my Color Palette Challenge top.
Sunday afternoon is quickly give way to Sunday evening. Sunday night will soon descend upon us and Monday morning, a new week, will begin. One of the things that keeps me going at the speed at which I go is knowing that every minute, every hour, every day that passes, is a minute, hour or day that’s gone forever . . that I’ll never get back. I want to enjoy every minute of every day and be as productive as I can be. Even though I try to get as much done as I can, I never set goals that result in stress because even something as fun as sewing will quickly become a chore if I allow myself to get stressed about meeting deadlines. When writing books, that sometimes happens if I don’t keep myself on a good schedule.
For our final gift certificate of the weekend, here’s our discussion topic:
