I am chuffed to bits! I've finished my first quilt along. Technically I wasn't quilting "along" because it finished years ago (really, it did!) but Crazy Mom Quilts has been kind enough to leave up the tutorial, she has many more and they are fantastic! Go check it out.

This is my finished quilt top!

Here is a photo of it hanging on the curtain pole! Odd but there was no way I was hanging it outside with the crazy wind we have today.

I'm going to work on getting the back done tonight - I think it's going to be pretty scrappy.

Last time I asked how people plan and handle their projects and I was pondering deadlines, is it worth putting pressure on yourself to get things finished?

I got in conversation with the lovely and very funny Rebecca at Making Rebecca Lynne who made me realise we're all generally in the same boat and it was a big motivator. It was like a heavy weight lifted and I was free to get on with it!! Isn't it funny how you can get so stressed out trying to do something, then procrastinate with a million other things until there's a little spark, you realise you don't give a crap when it's finished and then you suddenly have the motivation to do it?!!

Since then everything around me is like a little reminder to quilt:

Hahahaha... Even the kitchen is prodding me to get it quilted!
