I work best with a deadline, it's my idea of procrastination. I have really been trying to change this about myself, knowing that I can enjoy the finished project a bit before it moves on. That being said, I forced myself to go upstairs one evening to pin baste a quilt show entry. Mind you, I would have really liked to hand quilt this one, but time is not on my side, and I have resolved to machine quilt it verses pull my entry. Apparently I got a bit caught up in the panic of not having a clue as to how I would machine quilt it and got carried away with the pins. I figured, that as long as I was basting, I wouldn't have to commit to a quilting pattern.
They have all been neatly closed and waiting for over a week. I may need to schedule a day to remove some pins so that when inspiration truly strikes, I'm not spending all of my time UNpinning. So much for buying time.
In the mean time, I worked on a center block for a round robin that I am participating in through the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild. I'll admit to being down to the wire on getting this put together, but I do like it, and figure that it will represent the DMQG when it's done with so many hands working on it.
Oh, and by the way, Happy Valentine's Day, where are the days going?!
