Here's the thing I don't understand - why do my friends always seem to get pregnant in batches? I've got two girlfriends who are within a month or so of having their babies, and I have been putting off their quilts for ages, and am now up against a serious deadline or two.
So naturally, instead of making anything resembling real progress on either of their quilts, I find myself pulling out and finishing old ones that have been sitting out for months - like this green and lavender log cabin - which, while pretty, isn't really right for either of them
I guess part of the problem is a serious lack of motivation and inspiration.
One of them is having a boy ... and I cannot, for the life of me, find an attention-grabbing pattern or an inspirational fabric to get me on my way in that department. I have another month or so for her though.
The real problem is with my other friend, Pria, who's been my close friend forever, but has never managed to get a quilt out of me, even though she's on her third baby. As a result I have put all sorts of unnecessary pressure on myself to come up with something spectacular ... which has rendered me completely incapable of making a decision. Her shower is tomorrow, and I have procrastinated myself into a pretty corner.
I'd started working on this:
And then I remembered that I had THIS quilt top hidden away:
So there you go ... on the one hand, I want something MORE, and on the other I've got something that's TOO MUCH, and the only thing I have finished is a completely unrelated and irrelevant side quilt. But one way or another, something has to be done by the shower tomorrow night. I am not showing up without SOMETHING in my hand. lol - I guess I'm going to be busy tomorrow.
