Challenge Quilts


I have not finished my quilts.

The three quilts that are completely finished.

After feeling really dissapointed with myself yesterday when I knew they wouldn't be finished I changed my attitude. I am now really pleased. I have finished three quilts and almost finished two more.


My almost finished quilts. One requires binding and the other I am still stitching the ricrac on. At present I am doing almost one side of ricrac a night and need to stitch both sides of the ricrac so there are a few nights stitching there!
One that isn't finished I pieced alot of it in the challenge and the other that is almost finished has had extra work in it - frills and ricrac. So these have been more work than normal. But in spite of that I have stuck with a project and followed to the end in a short time. For me this is big. I usually flit about form one thing to another not finishing much. Now I have the experience and the confidence that I can stick with something and finish it. Hopefully you will be seeing alot more of this in the future!
