Sometimes it is nice to do the "unexpected" just because!!!!!

Hi Alycia! Wow, 39 linkups last week is a LOT. I often wonder about the old Crazy Mom Quilts linkup which was easily in the 100s. I wonder how she had time to visit all those blogs and comment! Your finish for today is definitely a squirrel project. But as you said, why not?!! And to have it all quilted in a pretty swirly pattern as well. You rocked it! Thanks for the linky party and Happy Friday. Take care. ~smile~ Roseanne

Your Half Square Log Cabins quilt is a great finish! I might delight in making this pattern some day, put it on my list.

Cathy said...

I remember that block drive! It sure made for some wonderful quilts.

I think I need to make another Log Cabin Triangles quilt! I love how yours turned out, the quilting adds so much wonderful texture.

Wow - that's a great finish! You're not fizzling - just think of it as a time for refueling!

To do lists always help me get back on track. I am super motivated to cross things off! :)

Your finished quilt looks great. And lots of other lovely eye candy has been shared too.
I've given up on to do lists, they just keep on growing and I change my mind. Now I make a 'one day' list. LOL

Susan said...

Ya, that happens to me. I get all excited and work away on something, then crash. I think I just do too much at once, so now I try to pace myself. So don't worry, you'll get back on track!

I still SEW want to make one of those quilts. Yours turned out AWESOME!!

Kate said...

You got almost to the end. That's really good for just a few days worth of effort!

Glad I'm not the only one who hits these roadblocks from time to time! Best advice I can give is to set a small time goal for each day -- just 15 minutes or 20 minutes, whatever seems a ridiculously small amount of time to you that you won't blow it off -- and EVERYTHING counts towards that time, even if all you do is pull out fabric to audition and make a big mess with it for 15 minutes. If it's part of your process, then it's part of your progress. Looking through your Pinterest boards or old magazines for project inspiration counts, too. If you get into what you're doing and spend more than 15 minutes, all the better -- but just forcing yourself to do that little bit each day will get you through the part that has you stalled out and eventually you'll get to where you're having fun again and your family has to drag you AWAY from your sewing machine. You know, "We're hungry and there's no food in the pantry, just ingredients!" and "We're naked because all of the laundry is dirty and only Mom knows how to put it in the washing machine"

If you figure out how to get back on track, please tell us. I've been struggling due to the pandemic. I'm so tired from working that I don't accomplish much. Grocery stores close at 8:00 p.m. that I do that on the weekends. And then blink...it's Monday again.

I really like this one. Nicely done.
