At the breaking point.............

1

During each quilt that I have on the racks I go through the "breaking point" where I just have to do something else. I can only quilt the same stitch over and over again before I go a little crazy - I know I have said this before, but with each quilt I think I will get over that part of the process. Not so.
One of my dear friends mentioned to me the other day that she had forgotten that I know how to piece because it's been a while since I have really done something for myself - this post prompted her comment. I just had to laugh because I do know how to piece and I absolutely love it. So, I have been piece strippin' tonight and it's fun - real fun! Not to mention a nice little break......I have to get this all in tonight because next week is the week to finish the quilt on the racks - I am excited for it to be finished and excited to move on to something new!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I am just the same.
Sometimes, when my project is too big and I get bored doing it, I NEED to start something new.

Those colors look fantastic !

Love the colors, love the dots. I try to collect dot fabric whenever possible and the brown fabric is great! This is going to be an awesome quilt when finished. Enjoy the process.

Love the fabric! Looking forward to what they come together as.

I'm the same way with piecing a quilt, I can only take so much of working on the same thing over and over and I have to do something else for awhile.

Lovely piecing! I find piecing very zen like and soothing. Looking forward to seeing the top you make from these bits!
