What am I working on - WIP: Stripey Stones quilt
This quilt has been on the go for too long. I made six of the nine stripey stones I need, then it stalled for lack of suitable fabric, but must be finished before I start another quilt... I have a bucket list of quilts which is probably now long enough to last a life time but luckily I will have got bored of some of the ideas before I ever start to make them!
How my work differs from others in its genre - I'm not sure it does! My quilts are not even very like each other. It is very early days in my experiment with quilting and at the moment I am happy hopping from one idea to another and seeing what happens.
How my creative process works - I rarely sketch things out but add the name of a quilt to my bucket list and keep all the details in my head. I spend a very long time thinking about a project, before finally getting started. Then I spend a very long time making it mostly because I tend to keep thinking of different options at each stage and getting paralysed by indecision.
I often make a false start because I like stubbornly working things out for myself. Work and life get in the way too. Either way I try not to feel bad about the lack of productivity! Very rarely, I have one clear vision right from the start and work like a mad thing until it is done - it is lovely when this happens.
One of the "rules" of the Round the World Blog Hop is that you should recommend a handful of blogs and invite those bloggers to take part. I always feel a bit uncomfortable about it in case it's not someone's cup of tea so I'm just going to point you towards a handful of blogs that I really like which you might not already have discovered, leaving it up to those bloggers whether they would like to take up the torch (or cup of tea) and run with it!
There is always something interesting to read, or lovely to see, here:
