This is a wallhanging project that I have been working on for a while but it got stalled and I couldn't figure out what the problem was.
I am well aware that this is the stage where a project can begin the death march to the UFO closet!
I was determined to figure out the problem.
***Is it too hard or technically challenging?
No...this is an easy and fun pattern to sew.
***Don't like the fabric or colour combination?
No...I was loving working with the plaid scraps that were leftover from other quilts I've made.
***Losing interest and working on too many other things?
Well, yes, but I still really wanted to finish this one.
And then I came to me. The problem was that I really love it! So why did that stall the project then?
Because apparently I didn't want to give it away as a Christmas gift as I had intended, and that is why it just wasn't coming together in December. I am planning to move this year, and this quilt wants to come with me wherever I move to!
Well, why didn't you just say so? LOL
Sometimes you have to be a patient "quilt whisperer" to discern the problem!!
Once I figured that out, it has been going great! I have made a few changes to the blocks...different kinds of buildings, made lighter coloured windows (to show that the lights are on and someone is home!) and mixed up the row layouts, etc. So fun!
What is stalling one of your projects? Just go whisper in it's ear... "what is your problem?" and see what you learn!
