Trying to be disciplined

I am trying to be a bit more disciplined with my quilting.  After I finished the fan quilt I was all set to start a new one…but then I looked at my pile of unfinished work and thought I should finish at least one before I start yet another.  Here is the choice (I picked this one because it wont take long to finish).

If you are a regular visitor you may remember this one.  The antique top was not in the best shape (see the sun fading along the fold lines) but I love it regardless.

The quilting pattern is not a simple one but the majority of the hard work is done.

all the center is done.  I need to finish up the pieced blocks at the edges.  I am quilting them with fairly simple outlining.

Here is a look at the back

and a closer look

I think I can finish this one up in a few weeks and then start the next one.

Just in case you have not seen enough garden pictures here are some more

The weather has been cloudy and off and on rain and should go to 90+ today so I don’t think I will be doing any work outside…so no reason not to get a lot of work done on that quilt!Happy QuiltingTim

    discipline! I had intended to stick to working on two quilts at a time but as I near the end of Joseph’s Coat there are so many quilts calling out to me I do believe that soon I will be working on two quilt tops and quilting one. I’ll try to stick to 3 projects and not increase it to 4 🙂

    Your love for this top is justified and returned – it’s looking very happy now.

  3. Oh, I love that Flying Geese top. Your quilting is definitely doing it justice. I never get tired of garden pictures. Yours is lovely. I think we may be kindred spirits in that regard. (I recently posted pictures of my garden in my blog.) It sounds like you might live in my neck of the woods? Can’t wait to see the next old top you bring to life.
