Procrastination

I have the Evidence of Disease quilt layered and ready to quilt. I am afraid to start. For two main reasons: I’m afraid I’ll ruin it (won’t happen — even crappy quilting makes a quilt look better), and I’m aware that once I start, I will eat/sleep/breathe this thing until it’s done (read: no laundry, no cooking, no talking about anything else to the point that it even annoys me). And it’s going to take a while. My goal is to have it done by the time Nancy D. gets here in February.

So, as an avoidance measure yesterday, I made this. (The blocks aren’t sewn together yet — they’re just hanging by friction on my design wall.)

Diversion

Jerry is now threatening to take it away from me, so that I’ll finish the big one so he can enjoy it.

I guess I should take this little diversion off the wall and work on the one I SHOULD be working on….

But isn’t the diversion pretty?!

It’s done with 16 2.5″ strips and three-quarters of a yard of two other fabrics using a pattern from this book. I’m quite pleased, and I’ll definitely be making more of the patterns in that book — so quick and simple, and great results!
