At first I was really enjoying myself, but after 10 days of quilting I was getting tired and ready to be finished. I still have hours and hours and hours of quilting ahead of me. SIGH! So this morning, I sat down, started to quilt and just stopped. This was no fun, and on my vacation, I need to have some fun. So I put it aside and decided to make a shower curtain out of leftover scraps and some older pieces that were not up to snuff.
I have wanted to sew an interesting shower curtain for some time, but it always seemed like a waste of time. Yet on vacation- what perfect way to waste time!
The first piece that I cut into was my very first attempt at sewing overlapping circles. I could not bare to throw it out, but I had not problem at all slicing it into lots of pieces. I also cut into a piece of Circle No. 2 that was an extra piece that never really worked with the composition.
It has taken me the better part of a day to finish about half of the curtain, but it felt so good to just cut and sew.
Perhaps tomorrow I will go back to finishing the detailed quilting on my other piece, but it was great to have a break.
