Christmas In June
So every once in a while I go through my works in progress. Some of them I know I will finish and some I know I won't finish.
I pulled these "Beyond The Cherry Tree" blocks out the other day. While I love the colors I just know I don't want to make any more. There are six all together. Instead of having them languish in the drawer I am going to make a Christmas table runner for my kitchen table with 5 of them. The extra block will go into my box of leftovers.
That's the bad thing about applique, they take a long time. You can get tired of them or just not have it in you to finish them.
I think quilted up they will look nice and my time will not have gone to waste.
They will add a nice touch to the table and every time I look at them I will feel good that they are "finished"!
Do you have any projects like this? What do you do with your "not quite finished blocks"?
