Hang Ups

What is your hang up

Everyone seems to have one part of the quilting process that is their “hang up.” Some people have a hard time getting started on a new project, others get the main body of a quilt done and then never get it bordered. Some people have many many tops done that never seem to get quilted.

My hang up tends to be backings. Once I get a backing pieced I usually get the quilt done, I just don’t seem to get backings done ahead of time.

So this week instead of making a wish list of what I would like to accomplish I am going to try and spend some time getting backings together. I have already found and cut fabric that will become two backings and have it ready to go in the wash. One of these backings will be for the Christmas Snowball quilt that I recently completed the top and the other is backing for a Heart Linus quilt top I completed several months ago.

My daughter has been home sick the last couple of days so have not accomplished much other than see to her. She might be a teenager but she takes full advantage of being sick and becomes totally helpless. I did sew a few minutes at a time working on the second Christmas quilt. You can't tell it from this picture but it is going to become a poinsettia scrap quilt.

I can't wait to see the finished quilt. I love scrappy Christmas quilts.
