Description

This was the first quilt I have attempted... and it's still going. I don't even have the top put together yet :persevere: I started collecting cat fabrics, and then for somereason floral fabrics and I decided to put them together. I'd been cutting out random squares and having ideas for years now, then last year my mum, during a visit, helped me fix it by cutting my pieces into proper size (oops) and trying to come up with a pattern.

I've kind of lost interest in doing this now, I think because I find some of the fabrics ugly! As they're some of the first pieces that made it into my stash I just bought random things, especially if they were quite cheap so when I look at this I feel somewhat disappointed. I keep looking at it to go back to it though.

I have projects like this....one I'm working on right now actually. A project where after a long amount of time (about 6 yrs or so in my case!), I no longer like the fabrics (often find myself saying "WHAT was I thinking when I picked THAT out?! heh) and it's tough to finish because of it lol. They're rough, but you can still learn a lot by finishing them, so keep at it! ;)

Allpatchedup I definitely want to finish it! I'm thinking I should finish it before beginning on the final stages of one of my other quilts so that I can use this for practice with the actual quilting and binding part -- I know I'm going to mess that up hehe.

I have a few of those fabrics. I reckon we could have been to some of the same shops.

True

I have fabric like that but so agree finish it you will learn lots doing so...and great idea to have it be what you learn on before moving to another!

True I think the inspiration bug is starting to hit me to finish this one! Too bad it's bad time now haha :(

Sewnsew Probably! I know a fair few of them are from Spotlight.

Joke That's a fabulous idea! It is good practice. We all learn so much when we finish a quilt the first time. :)
