I stayed up a little late last night to get this week-long cover finished. I sometimes feel that this late night fatigue shows up in the quality of the work. Or lack thereof. Lot's of non matching corners, but somehow I think I can live with that. But I am still rather happy with it's bright and cheerful assortment of colour and pattern. All I need to do now is attach some press studs to the opening. Then I can breathe a sigh of relief that one more project on my long, unwritten list, is ticked off.
For those crazy enough to try a similar project (I'm not sure I ever want to see a patchwork square again, but don't hold me to that) I cut out 5 inch squares of vintage sheeting and backed it with a queen sized sheet. I needed to cut it down slightly but it seems to fit the doona quite well. No quilting involved as it's just a cover.
I'm thinking that I need to tackle a one-afternoon, quick gratification project next. I have a fear of longer term projects, in that I will put a project aside for the night, and never pick it up again. Thus banishing it to the basket of unfinished projects. Does anyone else have this problem?
Hoping your week is treating you well.
