do!

do blogMy word for 2014 is a simple one – do!

I have to include the exclamation point to imply “do it now.”  Whenever I (try to) start a project,  I waste time changing my mind about the quilt pattern, my fabric choices, etc.  Sometimes I never begin the project because of my indecision.  I even started looking in the dictionary for a different word!

Instead, my word motivated me to go to my stash and pull out scraps of hot pink (my favorite)  along with black + white fabric squares I had previously made.  I threw them on some batting and started rearranging and trimming until I liked the design.  I treated the made fabric like applique pieces and used spray adhesive to keep everything in place ~ I felt like a little kid again gluing colored construction paper onto poster board!  I sewed all the pieces down with decorative stitches and bound it with white twill tape. The finished little quilt is 15 1/2″ h x 12″ w.

I selected my word and made my quilt in response to the New Year Challenge at 15 Minute’s of Play.  Be sure to check out what’s inspiring other quilters this year.

  2. I can’t see your do quilt :( . I have been making a list of words for this year. I feel like I need to make a full size quilt because of words that popped in my head when I thought about the challenge, haha.

Thank you for taking the time from your busy day to leave me a comment!
