Motivate Me, Monday!

>> Monday, September 7, 2009

There's nothing like Judy's weekly nudge to keep a quilter focused.

Remember these? Back at the end of March I decided to get serious about finishing this Lady of the Lake Queen size quilt for my bed. The picture above shows what I had done then.

These are the blocks that I've completed since April. I was trying for a minimum of four blocks a week to finish them all by the end of July.

Well, that didn't happen:) I still have 16 more to go! That's 256 MORE half square triangles - in case you were wondering.

I also have a little voice in my head that thinks adding half square triangles as a border would really finish this quilt. What do you think? Should I listen to it?
For now I have moved all my completed blocks into this box to make room for another project which is a gift with a timeline. This quilt was supposed to be a graduation gift for my husband - 3 summers ago! My timeline for it now is July 2010 - in time for our 14th wedding anniversary. Wish me luck - and focus. LOTS of focus!:)

Enjoy sewing your quilts,
Sarah Vee

Hmmmm, I don't know if I would do the HST's for the border.... but it might really look great.
I like what you have done so far, and the fact that you are sticking to it and getting it worked on is wounderful!!! You are almost there - excellant!!! And it's looking really good!!!
now I am going to be thinking of borders for this project!! (this is the area where I am not good at deciding!! So, I like to think "what would I do here" and try to figure it out!!)
