Yesterday I looked forward to today as if I were a kid let out of school for the summer. I realized that the quilt I was so diligently trying to finish by the end of May--BowTies--was done and the only other active quilt in progress was hand quilting Flowers. My life was wide open to possibilities. Today, however, I'm feeling at a loss. I have to make a decision about what's next (because I can't just sit and do nothing, can I?).
There are several possibilities.
Roses at the Garden Market? These blocks have been tugging at me. Each green square will finish at 4½".
These have been on my mind for a few months. I started them in 2015 and they've been waiting since 2017. I can't work on them quite yet because the kitties are here until next Wednesday and I need to lay all 180 of the squares on the floor to sort the arrangement. Then I'll decide on sashing/or not between blocks. I'm torn between red and white/natural striped sashing and grey or some other color between blocks, or maybe a group of nine blocks side-by-side and sashing around those.... Or...?
Baskets of Plenty are still waiting, too.
The blue and light sampler blocks have been finished for a few years. Finished unless I need to make more.
I have some little 3½" spool blocks I should do something with. I like spools, sort of....
Sweet Land of Liberty is in the wings but I'm not ready to pull that out just now.
Or, of course, I could start something new. Now that's a fun idea!
Maybe a quilt with rose-printed fabrics?
I guess I could always clean up my sewing space. (I'm too embarrassed to post photos.)
Or I could play, like kids out of school, or just be lazy for a week and sit and quilt and watch videos or listen to books on tape.... I think I'll decide tomorrow.
Do you ever feel like the kid out of school for the summer? Do you have summer quilting plans? Do your quilting habits change from season to season?
