I'm starting to learn that good things really do come in small packages. Even small quilts are really, really good. In fact, it's as good or even almost more gratifying than a large quilt right now.
I've been wanting to do more quilting for a while now. The problem is, I never seem to finish what I start. I have more quilt projects than I'd like to discuss that are sitting in the unfinished pile that just sit and wait for me to have more time to commit to them. But when I have so much other sewing to work on (I have three upcoming, two day craft shows that kick off next weekend). I just can't justify working on my bigger projects. And I SO want to.
Instead of pulling out bigger projects, I'm starting small. I can still quilt, but I can finish a project in a day, or, even better, a few hours. I'm planning on taking them to my upcoming shows, but I haven't decided if I'm going to try selling them or not. I just think they'll look great hanging above my table.
Now, instead of people coming to my tent and then walking away and then thinking to theirselves, "oh, look at all the mediocre bags and pouches," they'll say "oh, look at all the mediocre bags and pouches AND QUILTS." And then they'll walk away without stopping.
