Secret quilt top complete

posted in: Other projects | 7

secret-01How do I blog about my secret project when I’m not supposed to blog about it? For the first time, I’m working behind the scenes on a quilt for a specific exhibition that explicitly says that the work can not be shown on websites, blogs, Facebook, or any other internet, printed material or public display.

Okay, I get it. They want the show to be new and interesting for their viewers, but what do I talk to you about in the meantime? Ideally, I like to blog at least once or twice a week, give or take, but if I’m focusing all my attention on my secret project, what else is there to talk about? I doubt you’d be interested in the 30 lbs of sliced mushrooms that we were given and have spent the last four days dehydrating.

Well, suffice it to say, even though I haven’t told you about it, I’ve been sewing diligently the last two or three weeks (yeah!), and I just finished the quilt top today (double yeah!). Since I can’t show you the quilt top, I’ll hint that it uses some of the fabrics shown above.

      Actually, the show is a long way off — Like a year away!!! I just had ideas in my mind so I decided to get started on it. This will give me time to maybe make a second one and still quilt them both.

      LOL! I don’t think I’m ready for Quilt National! Maybe a few years from now. Yes, I am focusing on enjoying the process and not worrying about creating masterpieces. So much less pressure, less fear of the unknown, and trying not to care too much if people like what I make or not. I want to have fun quilting. If I can’t have fun, it’s a waste of time, energy, and supplies, right? Also, having a terrific time enjoying little Hazel!!!
