We all know there are two types of Quilters:
the practical, methodical self-controlled variety
the haphazard, procrastinating and perpetually disorganised.
Here is a quilt I am almost finished. All that is required is two more edges of binding to be sewn down and a label. For your interest, it is a quilt started in a class with Jenny Rosalky at Quiltsmith from a Melbourne design.
So close to being finished, yet it is numbered amongst my 38 plus unfinished quilts. Some will never be snuggled under or gazed at fondly with satisfaction.
Hopefully this blog will encourage me to be more the first type of quilter than the second.
So, the first group finishes their quilts before embarking on new projects; never buys fat quarters "just in case"; have their patterns nicely filed; always know where their scissors, pins glasses etc are. That is all I can say about the first group because I have never belonged.
The second group hatches new projects randomly (often with a feeling of self disgust); forever lose their scissors, pins, glasses and that special fussy cut whatever; buys more fabric than can be reasonably expected to be used in a lifetime. I could go on and on but I feel more and more ashamed as I write.
Instead I am off to start project 39 - a quick quilt for a young friend who is expecting her first child (no we don't know what sex) in November. I am thinking cot size but with my history I might make it big enough for a single bed.
