Finally bit the bullet...

I got the pattern made for the end piece of each row of the Lotus quilt...got it made yesterday but I just did not have the courage to cut the fabric...
Finally this evening late, I bit the bullet, took the fabric and pattern down to my cutting table and cut one set of end pieces, took them over to my Juki and sewed them on.  Things went well.  I cut another set and did another row.  Again, it went smoothly.  So now there are no excuses to not get it finished.  (BTW, the rows are  just laying there...the are not sewn together yet.)
***********
I told my best friend it is amazing how much fear and dread can color your world.  I have had this baring on my mind for a while now.  Have been sort of miserable the past few days. Actually, this entire quilt has been one of fear for each step.  If it was just for me, just something I was making, I would have went full steam ahead.  But this was something my daughter chose, and something she invested a LOT of money in...fabric is not cheap.

Well, it looks beautiful. I can understand why you were fearful to start this project. Hope the rest of it goes smoothly, which it surely will if you relax!!

It is going to be a beautiful quilt! I know the feeling. I am really not a seamstress but agreed, a few years ago, to make old fashioned dresses for four little girls. I woke up several time in the middle of the night worrying. I was glad to finish that project!

I just Googled the pattern to see what this pattern looks like on a larger scale. It's beautiful. And the fabrics your daughter chose are lovely. Your skills to cut, piece and quilt are exceptional so keep going forward Rose....this is going to be an outstanding quilt!

i have lived my entire 71 years 5 months life fearing things, all things, all decisions and something like this most assuredly would... fear has controlled everything i do from which TV to buy to which car and all in between.

It going to be beautiful. Once you get done you'll think "silly goose, what was there to be afraid of". ;o)
