Fransson Quilts, Quilt Blocks

I’m such a loser!

July 26, 2012

(Putting a big L sign on my forehead) I’m really behind on my quilting bees!  Yeah if you don’t remember my WIP post on Lee’s blog a month ago. . . I had about 20 blocks to do.  I’ve been busy trying to finish them by the end of July.  So far so good:

Megan's Block

Elizabeth's block

Elena's block

I’ll let the block owner reveal the block when they’re good n’ ready.

So I’m looking at my list of WIPs and I’ve been thinking. . .

Each month my goal is to finish a WIP.  I gotta keep my WIPs to something that manageable ya know?  The first one that’s on list is my Prince Joel Small Plates.  I’ve put the blocks together. . and the top is done.  I’ve also got the back done.  I just need to finish quilting it.  I think in the whole process of making a quilt, I just don’t like quilting mainly because I suck ass at it.  Yes, I can’t get better at something if I don’t practice.  But I think I might just drop it off to my buddy Kayli to get it quilted since it’s been sitting unfinished forever!  argh!

I also want to update my blog. . .

    Hang in there girl! We all have stuff we struggle with! I’ve got one at the same stage as your quilt, & instead I’m zakka-ing & swapping! I’d say drop that quilt off with Kayli & move forward!

    I suck at quilting too. I so want to get better but I am too lazy to practice. I just want the quilting fairy to give me some talent!

    I will join you and the others who say they suck at machine quilting. It’s the “free motion” style I am bad at,so I totally avoid it and stick to straight line quilting.Have hardly any time to create, no less do actual work by practicing! LOL
