Quilt/Stash project--2020---Determined Quilter
Tuesday, October 20,2009....Week 11--Blog 21--Day 68 of 4,014
SCRAPS AND STASH
*&^&*)(*!! Life happening again...nothing interesting or special--time consuming, boring ordinary hassles...and necessary to deal with and solve.
....and still..some progress to report; but not on the scrap quilt based on the Jean Wells design mentioned last in Blog 20. The scrap backing is now 95% finished.
Perhaps there will be some time for sewing this week..and..the main focus of time and energy is preparing for departure on 10/31 for the working and the Jokohoma Quilt Show/quilting tour to Japan.
Scraps and Stash...comments:
STASH: all the pieces of "wonderful" fabric that could not be passed up when brousing quilt shops.
Professional quilters seem to delight and treasure and seem joyfully proud of their stash--for example, reference pictures "Collaborative Quilting"(2006) by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston......
Good for them!!! for me this Stash fabric is a "burden"....
SCRAPS: odd remenent pieces of fabric left over from completed quilts. Scraps are both a burden and a challenge for me....what to do with them????
......why can't I just throw away????
...and, I am determined...both with Stash and Scraps......
yes..patience..patience patience...and creative challenge...
and...a happy report..Since August 14,2009 when this project and blog started I have..ACTUALLY, completed 10 wall hangings....
I hope to blog from Japan...now THAT will be a challenge.
