Procrastination

This is my WIP(work in progress). It is laying all over my dining room floor waiting to be complete....i think i will do some better pictures once i have the whole top together. This has been in the making for awhile now. I am a craft/quilt procrastinator. Whenever i get to a hard part or a problem I am more likely to put it down than finish, even though i know if i take it step by step and power through it I can get it done. Right now, i am at a hard part. I am having to undo several sections to re sew them. Not because i made a mistake but because i need all the parts to fit together better to make a nicer shaped top. There are many projects on my sewing table like this. Maybe it is time to stop procrastinating and just get them all done, before i am tempted to start something new....again!

**for anyone that might be interested, this is called a disappearing nine patch quilt. I got the pattern here. It was very helpful. The fabric i used was American Jane Look and Learn. I bought 4 charm packs and randomly assembled.**

I think finishing what you've started is a good plan. I think it may be your grandest quilt yet!

Leslie,
I'm in awe...I LOVE it. Is some of the fabric Dick and Jane? I can't tell, but it's darling.

I want to make a quilt out of all my scraps to use them up...perhaps this is the inspiration I've been needing!
