I am attempting to keep up with The Sassy’s Quilter’s Triangle Quilt Along. I had big plans to sew, sew some more, and then finish with a bit more sewing.
Unfortunately, my uncle was in a car accident last Friday due to MN weather conditions. My parents were out of town and unable to return. There was a lot of time spent on the phone talking to my parents and sisters as his condition became tragic over the weekend. Sewing didn’t seem as important after that.
I laid out the quilt Sunday and sewed a few rows together.
My very “helpful” assistant….
These are rows 9-13. I had to pick up the first 8 rows so I would have space to continue the process.
I have to admit…I’m not completely in love with the quilt. It is growing on me.
It may just be my current frame of mind. Does that happen to you? That certain quilts remind you of what was going on in your life while you are making it? Life events are a part of every quilt. For me, quilting is a stress reliever. If life is stressing me out, I tend to get lost in the process of making quilts. Those quilts are a bit bittersweet for me.
I keep telling myself if I sew 2 rows a night, I will be able to get enough done to keep my goal of long arming my quilt April 26th. I am thinking that I will need some serious quilt therapy this weekend.
