Once upon a time, a long time ago,
I had an idea that I wanted to make a quilt in the colours of vintage board games.
It's so long ago, I don't think I can find the post!
And then I saw the Spring Fling pattern by Katie
and decided it was the business for this project.
I started off well, and it's a lovely project indeed,
but then it started to marinate in the corner of the living room
and nothing more happened.
I decided that I had almost done enough for a large cushion,
so I put it in the pile to come with us and the other night I finished off the piece,
and on the weekend I sewed it onto a backing piece for quilting.
It's really really lovely, and it would have made a stunning quilt,
but sometimes you just have to let it go in the interests of finishing something!
That's not to say a slow project is bad,
but sometimes you just get bogged down,
and a large cushion is better than a pile of unfinished business.
