A Casual Quilter

I have lists…It’s a curse really – but I come by it honestly. My Dad is big on lists too.
I have grocery lists, home to do lists, works lists (multiple there) and, of course, “art/craft” lists like this..(it's pretty sad when you have multiple copies of the SAME list - yikes!)
Now art should be spur of the moment, correct? I have my list but often I go off on little unplanned projects (which is okay by me). Not too long ago I was big on quilting. You can see some of my work in previous posts. Lately though I find I have moved on to other things. I don't do the big quilts like I used to. The good news, a lot of my quilting skills still apply. Which brings me to my current quilting project (which IS on the list) – a gift for friends who recently had a second darling daughter. I’ve made a lot of baby quilts over the years so you would think I would have it down pat… Even though I know all the steps I can still get caught out making mistakes. Like fussy cutting (dang you Owls, it took me a while to get you in the right direction and I STILL managed to mess up). I always figure its not being entered into a competition and the kid is probably going to “do” something on it anyway (that’s reality) ... so it does not have to be absolutely perfect. Still it’s cute – but I don’t know when the next one will get done (they are on my list, yes Sis including one for you). I guess I better get to them soon and not be so "casual" (LOL)…Jewels
