Well, it's getting late and I'm tired but I wanted to write a little something, something before I head for the bed.
I have finished piecing 20 Log Cabin blocks for my Block of the month. These were the "filler" blocks and were the last of the blocks and now I can start putting it all together. I have enjoyed this BOM but I'm not sure I will do another one. This was my first and my last. I am not one of those people that needs a kit or someone else to pick out fabric for them just to pump out a quilt. I don't want to have one of the same quilts that 5000 other people have. I enjoy doing my own thing. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with kits or Block of the Months. I think they are big time savers for alot of people. All I'm saying is that I want to be the one that makes my own kit or my own BOM or do my own thing. I like being different or singing my own out of key song....Anyway, I didn't mean to get on the bandwagon or anything about that, I just wanted to say I am finished with my blocks and can get to the putting together phase of the project....Woo hoo. I do like to see a finished project.
Someone once told me (and I don't remember who it was), if you figure out what kind of quilter you are, you will feel better....What I mean by this is: are you a product person or a process person?....Do you just have to see a finished product or do you enjoy the process? Most of the time, I am both. I am a very obsessive, compulsive person. I really have to stop myself and take time to ENJOY myself. I love piecing a block and seeing it come together. It's like a puzzle. If you can just fit that piece together with that other one, it will fit just right over in that little corner. ANYWAY, I am going to have a finished quilt shortly and I will put up a picture soon. I have to find my camera first....
