I can't believe it myself, but I'm in a quilting slump !
I went through a lot of quiltbooks...nothing happened... I visited quilt blogs... nope. I dug in my pile of UFO's....no result :-/
While digging in my UFOs I remembered something which immediatley made me blush with shame; my son. I have been quilting since 1996 and I made so many quilts,but who hasn't a quilt on his bed ?????? Yes, my son. I started several times on a quilt for him. One ended in a UFO quilt. Do you see the log cabin blocks. I thought they would be nice for his quilt. Maybe 10 years ago I started a marinerss compass for him. Yes, I made these blocks all by hand. A few years later I discovered my machine and finishing this project seemed a problem to me,
then I remembered a conversation with my DS from a little time ago:
DS: "Mom when do I get my quilt? You have been working on it for almost 10 years....."
Me: uuuhhh .....(Shame shame)
DS: Mom, right now I would even be happy even with a pink quilt with flowers. It doesn't matter, I want to have a quilt made by you.
(He knows I love pink fabrics with flowers)
While I was chatting with Kathie about my quilting slump, I decided to baste this top for him immedialtey. I can keep the quilting simple and work fast. It can't be that all my girls have a quilt and my son hasn't! I have to get rid of that "shame" feeling.
