Me, I ain’t watching a football game.
Me, I’m figuring out a puzzle. It’s a quilt. And it’s melting my brain. But I love it. Figuring out the way “in” on this Snail Trail/Milky Way variation is making me buzz with excitement and designer jumping jacks. My dear friend Ebony helped me cut out a lot of this quilt last weekend, but I’ve had a change of heart on a couple pieces. Even though I sewed strip sets, I think I have to scrap them. (Literally, into the scrap bag they will go.)
What I’ve learned in my years making quilts is that you have to work on that which you love. You have to find that way “in.” Otherwise, it’s work you don’t have time for.
Make the quilts you love. It’s better than…well, it’s really good.
