Now, if you know me, you know that I have about 20 plastic totes in the garage containing various projects; yarn and fabric.
I opened the garage door (not all the way - because I have paper boxes full of fabric behind the door) my initial idea was to finish a couple more afghans. Opening the door reminded me that I still had fabric for quilts. So, I changed my mind and grabbed the two paper boxes full of fabric and sat down on the living room floor.
I began to sort remnants by color scheme, all the while invisioning the beautiful quilts they would make.
After I sorted the two fabric boxes I remembered that I had started two or three quilts that were in totes in the garage. I asked Vincent to get them down for me (it's wonderful having a very tall son in the house).
I proceded to sort through two totes and find all the pieces to the previously started quilts. I spent about 3 hours looking at fabric; sorting; organizing and coming up with a game plan to complete the quilt tops this weekend.
Yes. I am a crazy woman. I can get these quilt tops done. My problem is the filler and the backing and the tieing and the sewing of edges. I am not very good at any of those. I have thought "I will ask my friend Gwenda to help me. She is fantastic when it comes to finishing quilts." Then I thought: "I could get my other friend Donna to help me too. I am sure she would gladly help me. After all, I helped her with many 'Rainbow Girl' grand officer quilts."
So, all of my fabric and patterns are organized on the dining room table to begin production. It's such a beautiful fabric rainbow.
"I'm so excited! I just can't hide it!"
