My best excuse for not completing my FootSquareFreestyle (F2F) 2015 quilt has just evaporated.
There was one outstanding set of three blocks, due from Emmely in the Netherlands. Now, Emmely got married recently, so has had a great deal on her plate. Then she went on honeymoon. And once she got back, she’d been feeling unwell for quite a while, so I was happy to wait patiently, and I think you’ll agree it’s worth it! For any new followers who haven’t seen the other blocks in the 2015 collection, hop over to the gallery page and take a look. Scroll down… and down…. and down…. My blocks are last of all 🙂
Yup, it’s now officially a UFO, a quilt which will have to wait patiently for me to find the time to sandwich, quilt and then join everything together.
On the upside, because this quilt is staying at home with me instead of being given away, I’ll be able to improve my FMQ skills on it without fear of giving away a quilt with slightly-less-than-perfect stitching.
You know me: Finished is Better than Perfect.
So I won’t be rushing, or guilting myself, or inflicting any (more) stupid deadlines on myself. It’ll just be slow, steady and as time allows.
And by the end of 36 blocks, I’m willing to bet I’m not so scared of FMQ any more…
