Needing a quilting kickstart...


Okay...It’s October...time to get serious...I have linked up toElm Street Quilts OMG program because being in a non-productive quilting phase has gotten old. There is a need for a major kick-start and since I don’t drink this stuff....

Or own a motorcycle....

Committing to a month of working on a specific project may just be the motivator I need.
In one of my stackable bins, lies the bits and pieces of Settler’s Trail by Primitive Gatherings.

All the individual units have been pieced and squared up with a number of completed blocks ready.

I even have some very cool numbered pins to help keep the rows in order as it will be somewhat of a challenge for me to keep everything straight. One miss-aligned unit and the pattern will be thrown way off...

This project predates the dinosaurs I think...too many years have gone by and it is bugging me that it is still not finished.
My goal for October? To get these bits and pieces finished and ready to sew the blocks together at my fast approaching 5 day Retreat at the end of October. Since this project has been hauled to every Fall Retreat for countless years, I am going out on a limb and stating...this will be the last time.
Wish me luck...I am going to need it!

  1. You can do it! How large is the finished quilt? The numbered pins look like a fine addition to any quilter's stash of supplies!

  2. Wishing you lots of luck, but you've got the hard part done, I would think with all those teeny weeny pieces sewn together. It's going to be incredibly when you get it finished. The ultimate scrappy quilt. Keep motivated and stay off motorcycles and away from Mountain Dew! Yahoo!
