Yesterday, I sent off my project for the Winter 2016 issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine, two weeks ahead of my May 1st deadline. Whew! I'm thrilled with the way it turned out and I hope that you'll like it as well!
The binding for my school houses quilt is prepped and ready, just waiting for it's return from my longarmer friend Alice who does most of my quilts.
And rather than start on a new project, I decided to move on to the next step of my Brinton Hall quilt which is to add the perimeter hexies to square off the center medallion block.
Here's a photo from the Quiltmania magazine which shows the center medallion quite well. I'm referring to the large square within the first turquoise border.
Mindless but fun sewing which is exactly what I need right now.
My goal is to finish this step by Friday.
When working on projects, I seem to work best when I set myself short, reachable goals. In that way, long, arduous and even boring tasks seem so much less daunting and I get the sense that I'm accomplishing something.
Do you play the same mind games with yourself?
