lay-out here. I know that it is well after Christmas; but, there is always next year - and, I figure, it's better to be late/early for next year rather than not doing the pattern at all. I am going to be teaching the Twister rulers at my LQS and I think that this will be a great shop display for my fall/winter classes this year. I always get so busy come September that I know I never would have made this if I didn't do the project when the inclination struck! I quilted this in feathers using Yenmet metallic thread and I just love the effect. The quilting was the first thing a couple of my friends noticed when they saw the quilt. I just love metallic thread - it's sew yummy.
I love the bright red, saturated fabrics in this quilt. It's really making me happy and working on a red and white quilt in February just feels so right. I've had these fabrics in my stash for a while (pre-washed and pressed even) but I just wasn't in that place to get going on it. I think it's because when I re-sized this pattern a lot of the measurements ended up being odd - like 3 3/16" types of things - so I put it off for a long time. All of a sudden I felt like working on it. Maybe it's because I've been pulling so many projects out of my quilt closet and making great progress on them? I don't know why really - but - all of a sudden I really wanted to get to work on it. So, once again, I decided to strike while the iron was hot and got to work.
Are you like that as well quilters? Do you have to be in the right place mentally to pick up a project? Do you stick to one project at a time? Or, do you work on whatever strikes your fancy?
