Starting is so much fun
Although I usually have to finish all my quilts to a deadline, I often tell my students that "finishing is over rated, it is much more fun to start a new project"! The decision on a pattern, the selection of fabric, the first cut into that yummy new fabric, the stitching, the pressing, the pleasure when it all fits together and looks great... What could be better.
I have been sponsored by Two Green Zebras to make a new quilt for publication in a future issue of Quilters' Companion magazine. The fabric is called "Dutch Heritage", designed by Petra Prins, Nel Kooiman and Otto Hamelink for Anbo Fabrics. It is a reproduction range of fabric inspired by Dutch chintz of the eighteenth century. Oooh, gorgy!
I have been having fun today working on the new quilt.
It is coming together. Hope you get some stitching time.
