I finished the borders yesterday. Now the batting
and the backing and then the quilting. Then I can
finally hang it. It was amazing how different my mind
was since the last time I worked on it. I was finally able
to think clearly and making flying geese wasn't
as hard as I thought. I am still only using material
from my quilt stash. I have material from two women
that were cleaning out their room and just wanted to
get rid of the boxes of bits and pieces leftover from
their old projects. I decided I would just use all of this stuff
up before I went and bought anything.
The funny thing about using other peoples stuff is it might not
be colors or patterns that I would ever use but because I don't
remember buying it it is always a little surprise when I find
stuff going through the boxes.
I just don't have a cohesive feel to my quilts but that is okay.
I have some old quilt tops from my husbands families and they
just used what they had. I am going to do the same thing.
I have so much stuff that I need to get rid of or use up or
give away. I have been convicted of what a hoarder I am.
I mean really, when was the last time you saw a U Haul at
