A Problem Solved
My favorite quilt style is Scrappy so I was delighted to see this month’s Lotto block continued the made fabric theme. By January 3rd I had pulled out a mound of red scraps. January 9th came and I was still looking at the same mound. Why couldn’t I get started on what should be an easyblock?
It took me three days to make the first heart and another week to make the second one. In the meantime, to avoid that pile of red, I cleaned things, ironed things, did the mending, and put some other stuff away. Then in a final, desperate avoidance effort, I sorted the red scraps into 6 piles and Bingo!! The problem was corrected and I flew through the next 6 blocks. Apparently, all those decisions just paralyzed me.
So here’s my confession: I am a quilter who doesn’t like to choose fabrics. Love to buy them and have a BLE stash but from now on, it’s the grocery bag decision method for me.
