After last years (2007) shop hop I quickly finished the block purchased from each participating store. I probably had the top completed in a couple of weeks or less. I hung it over the curtain rod, sure that looking at it all the time would inspire me to get it quilted and in use before Christmas.
Well, that was over a year ago and it still hangs on the curtain rod. I have no plans to have it finished by this Christmas but I could always surprise myself! I do entertain myself quite often by thinking about how I will quilt it and how I will use it. Will it be a large wall hanging or will I put it to better use by using it to cuddle on the couch. Who knows. Maybe it will change year to year. Of course, it needs quilted first before it can be of any use to anyone.
I really like piecing quilts and have no idea yet if I enjoy quilting them - as I haven't finished one yet! I have about five completed tops. I didn't actually count, just guessing. And a few more that I have the strips done and just need to put together. I think with some of them I may try the "quilt as you go" process and see how it comes out.
