I’m at a stalemate with a quilt right now. I finished the top for it ages ago. But I just can’t get motivated to finish the darn thing. Its not that I don’t like the material I used or the pattern – this is horrible to say, but it is who it is going to that is holding me back. As you know I usually make my quilts for people and this one is no exception. However, I am having a hard time feeling like I want to gift it to them.
It is hard to make something that take so much care, time and love for someone who has show NO care, time and love to us.
The other bad thing about this whole “mess” is that I know they will be disappointed with the quilt I made. It wasn’t the one they requested I make for them. I don’t do requests, first of all. Second, just because you are having a baby doesn’t mean I am making you one. Third, I was not about to try and copy a one of a kind quilt that someone is selling on etsy – it is their pattern, not mine – in my head that is stealing.
Will I get the quilt done – yes, before their baby is born, if I get some energy – maybe.
Have you ever had a quilt stalemate?
