We do not have to feel perfectly certain or confident in the outcome to quilt. We simply have to try. The fun thing about this is that if it doesn't work, a quilter can rip.
Often, I encountered many projects where my thoughts and actions filled me with anything other than confidence. I think boldness has a sort of magick in it that proves we can do what is right at the right time.
Without a pattern, I have completed another top which measures 70" x 52", perfect for a personal nap quilt. It is constructed completely from scraps or give-away fabrics that I gathered and put in a 'kit'. There is enough fabric for the back and the binding, and enough scraps to do something else with later. I pulled the top over me as I sat on my love seat and it seems just fine to snuggle under and watch TV.
Soon enough, the clubhouse kitchen will be re-done and the place open for me to baste again. Then all my days will be spent machine quilting. Meanwhile, I keep at the small stuff.
