I love starting new projects

in: General

I know it sounds crazy, but I love when I start these projects I do the “housekeeping” too.

BNewProjectDayefore I start these quilts, I try so hard to prep my space. I may not get my counter cleared, or the ironing board emptied, or my sewing table ready, but I always clean my floor. I just love starting my projects with a clean floor. My work area is so small that I literally turn circles – Cut, Turn, Sew, Turn, Iron, Turn, Trim/Cut – so to me, clean floor is the best.

So this month I am doing Green – not my favorite color on the color wheel, but I’m sticking with it.  I have been searching google, pinterest, magazines and any books that I had around. I even ordered 3 different patterns and I was still having trouble picking what I wanted to do. I don’t know if it’s the color or just the time of year, I just couldn’t get revved up about anything for this month.

So I went a different angle…I looked at the different rulers/templates that I have around and haven’t used.  I came across this huge box in my bedroom (yes, this is my overflow room) and I remembered that I had ordered a Gravity Quilt kit and the 2 rulers that are needed. So I opened the box.  I almost deterred to start this project when I had that box open… but I didn’t.  So I pulled out the “Hen N More” ruler and started putting it to work.

So I am off to cut triangles…..This will be quite the learning experience for me!
