But, walk in I do, no matter what. And, the results can be pretty amazing. I am not afraid to tackle a quilt that may take a year, or even two. I have to step away from those designs every once in a while, and that adds to the time element. During those breaks I may make a table runner or a dog blanket, something simple to remind me that I can, in fact, finish a project.
I have been afraid to look back through my blog and see exactly when it was I finished The Paw. All I focus on is I started it and finished it, and it is amazing. Who cares how long it took? I would have been sewing something anyhow!
|And, here it is.|
|I had it custom quilted and am very pleased with that decision. And, of course, it has my|
usual machine-embroidered label.

|I love these fabrics together. They holler "sweet and simple" to me.|
|Such a simple design can bring a lot of impact with the right fabrics.|
In the spring I will be getting a copy of Natalia Bonner's new pattern book of modern log cabin designs. From that I will choose a quilt to make for Anna. And, there's always more to plan beyond that one. So many quilts, so little time.
