Sometimes you have to hit “pause” and get some things FINISHED. I am spending my quilty time this month to get some of my unfinished projects finished.
I have (finally) finished my Summer Blockbuster quilt from last summer. I has been sitting there just needing binding for months, and I am pretty excited to have it finished before I actually start this summer’s blockbuster!
A couple of years ago, I made the lemoyne star blocks using gold, purple and minty green inspired by the colors in the leafy border fabric. I made several in 3″, 6″, 9″ and 12″ blocks without any plan for a quilt, and then they sat in WIP-land for a long time. Last Summer I finally decided to just make what blocks I had into a quilt, and this is the result.
It feels good to mark one off the list of Unfinished! If you like this quilt and have a group of orphan blocks, the pattern to turn them into a quilt like mine is published Here on my blog.
These blocks, then also the quilt, sat unfinished for a long time because I wasn’t too sure I really loved it. It’s funny how you can put something away for a while and then get it out, finish it, and realize you really like it more than your remember. Maybe that binding was just the finishing touch it needed!
