(by George I think I've got it)
Sometime in 2007 I decided I wanted to work on a Grandmother's Flower Garden - loving what I saw on Libby's blog and receiving encouragement from her, I jumped in with both feet. I pulled out my Rhubarb & Ginger fat quarter bundle, got very organized and assembled many GFG flowers. Oh, I was so proud!!! Then I came to screeching halt (yes, a complete stop)............no matter how many diagrams I saw I simply couldn't figure out how to put all the flowers together to make one quilt - I truly felt dumb!!! So, I put the whole project away in a pretty box and decided it just wasn't meant to be. Deep huge SIGH!!!
On occasion over the last two years I pulled out the pretty box - spread my flowers out and simply released an even bigger, deeper SIGH - still receiving encouragement from Libby - alas I just couldn't see it. I even joined the Great Hexagon Quilt Along and asked for help and after receiving advice I still couldn't see it. More sighs!!!
Well, yesterday I decided enough was enough - it was time! I looked at the pretty box and all the flowers and said "It's ON"! LOL
I don't know what happened but this time it clicked! I am well on my way to assembling my Grandmother Flower Garden quilt top - yet another deeper & bigger SIGH (this one of relief - whew)
It's probably going to be a long time before I see this quilt top completed but I certainly feel much better - I can pull out that pretty box and feel good that I know what I'm doing.
Thanks for stopping by! Come again and come often!
