Do you all remember when I told you about Della's quilt for the first time? Probably not. That's because I had a completely different blog address back then. That was almost a year ago, and it was supposed to be a gift for her first birthday.
Where is it now? The top is completed and sitting--folded nicely--on a piece of our old coffee table in my sewing room. It's been there since August--her birthday month.
I don't really feel like I failed on this one; it's more like I just lost the will to make it. The main reason is because the quilt is GINORMOUS. I mean Della is a year old. She doesn't need a twin-bed-sized comforter! Unfortunately I didn't stop to think that a finished quilt that measures 60"x70" would be exactly too big for the next 4 years.
I'm not really sure what to do on this. I already have all the fabric to finish this one, and I do like it. But I don't really want to finish it. yes, there was a slightly whiny tone and some foot stomping there. I do want her to have a quilt I made her; I just always envision a toddler sized quilt when I think of giving this to her, not one for a baby troll.
So I'm thinking of scrapping this project for now, maybe finishing it with something or someone else in mind. I haven't really decided this, but I'm leaning in that direction. What do you all think? Is it terrible if I don't finish my first quilt before starting another? I mean, am I putting some kind of evil quilting jinx on myself for doing that?! I may need a little hand-holding on this one!
