In anticipation of an Inklingo Golden Wedding Ring collection, I thought I’d have a look at my unfinished projects and see if anything jumped out at me that would have to be included in a rotation with the Golden Wedding Ring quilt I know I want to make. In no time, I found two – not a surprise, I suppose, given how often I flit from project to project.
The two I found are rather big ones in varying stages of completion.
The first is a two-colour Double Wedding Ring. I’ve made loads of these rings.
And lots of finished arc/melon units.
When I opened the project box I found this – it seems I got distracted by something and left an arc/melon unit unfinished. The pieces needed for the remaining three arc/melon units for a ring are in the little glassine envelope that’s with the unfinished melon/arc unit.
Thankfully, I have everything printed and sorted and in glassine envelopes in the DWR project box so I can easily put my hands on the pieces I need to finish the two-colour top. And I even put aside enough of the burnt orange fabric to make its binding. So everything is ready and I have no excuse not to keep working on this! This one has my favourite – curved piecing.
The second rather big project is the Stormy Seas one I started years ago when I made all these blocks.
Once again, when I looked in the project box, I found I had left off working on it when I was in the midst of a block. Clearly I was distracted by something else – again.
There aren’t that many blocks left to make. All the pieces for each block are printed and ready in the glassine envelopes that are left in this project box. I remember when I began the Stormy Seas project – I could barely cram all the envelopes in that little tin. This project has loads of opportunities for continuous sewing.
So now I will have three projects to work on when the Golden Wedding Ring collection is released – maybe, just maybe, I can get all three finished if I stick to a rotation.
Right now I’m going to take a break from the various Silent Garden, Harpsichord and 9-patch blocks and finish these two partially completed blocks for both of these waiting projects so that when they do get started up again, I won’t have any partially finished blocks to deal with.
