Confession is good for the soul.....and great incentive to finish projects! Or, I should say, the thought of having to go on line and confess that once again I was stalled on the borders for a quilt pushed me to the finish line (or at least the flimsy stage) last Friday night.
I expected to hear from LindaJ at some point on the weekend and I was sure she would want to know how I was making out on my Bargello Bowl quilt since she had finished hers on retreat the previous weekend. I had the fabrics picked out for the border, I just had not gone that extra step and attached them. Once I got going, it didn't take that long, what was the hurdle? I am not sure what was keeping me from attaching those borders, but I do know that I was not going to face confessing that I had not yet finished this project, so I soldiered on and this is the final result--my completed Bargello Bowl flimsy!
This finish was just in time as the FABs are scheduled to tackle a project together--Ricky Tim's Convergence. We are scheduled to start at 7:00 am Saturday morning. We have agreed that we can go as far as cutting out our 4 - 16" squares of fabric and that is all! No starting ahead of time--even if it means hiding the pattern so we aren't tempted!
Who knew that confession and temptation had anything to do with quilting?
