This is the first time I've folded an unfinished quilt top to put it away for a while. With the holidays coming I knew it needed to be up off the floor, but I am so sad to do it. For me, out of sight is out of mind. I need to see a work-in-progress to make progress on it. I'm afraid this will languish in the depths of storage somewhere and I'll never pull it out again.
But this top had been on the floor for more than a month and I hadn't made a decision about that final border. I was making no progress (though I was thinking about changing/adding to the second border from the outside). It had to be moved.
I've put blocks away, in a stack, on a shelf, or in a box, but I don't know how to fold a quilt top that needs another border. When I open it again I know it won't lay flat and then how will I measure for a second border?
The sadness of it all.... I hope this doesn't become my first true UFO (other than tops waiting to be quilted).
