Here are my finished quilts and I'll explain the guilty part later.
This second quilt are the circles I had to cut out for this quilt scroll down to see it. This little baby will be donated to my guild's charity quilt program. Was super fast and easy to make and used all leftover fabrics from the first quilt.
Now the guilty part, maybe guilty is the wrong word, but lately I get more and more comments from guild members and friends about how many quilts I finish. I don't know why it's such a big deal that I actually finish quilts. I don't have a lot of quilts that are started - I finish the ones I start. I have a lot of what I call UFO's - quilt kits - fabric and patterns - but not sewn in any way. I like to finish the quilt I'm working on before I can start another. People are always amazed that I can get so much done. Maybe because I work full time and commute, I need to use my time more efficiently. I rarely just sit and watch tv. I have it on all the time I'm sewing so I don't miss any shows, but I work while I watch - whether I'm quilting, cross stitch or blog writing/reading. Now there are things in my life that I should spend more time on. My housekeeping skills have a lot to be desired. I do the minimum each week unless I am expecting company. My floors get swept and mopped most weekends, the sheets get changed and laundry gets done weekly, and my bathroom gets cleaned but that's about it. I don't have to cook big meals - it's just me and my hubby at home and he eats at weird times so I usually whip something easy up for myself. But ladies, please don't give a finisher a hard time or tease her for finishing her quilts. I know a lot of it's jealousy on your part but I now know how another friend felt --she actually stopped showing her quilts at show and tell because people used to give her a hard time too. I hope I never did and if I did Anna, please know I'm sorry. I love show and tell and I love showing people what I've worked on but if I continue to get teased, I may stop too. Is there anyone else out there like me? Do you get a hard time from others for finishing your quilts?
Thank you for looking and for letting me share my finishes with you.
