I finished the rosettes for Month 6!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am to report that completion. It really makes a difference sewing every evening for an hour or so.
I also notice that I am more in tune with the project. I am more aware of strategies to line things up and I don’t feel stressed about stitching fast, so I am making fewer errors.
Of course, the giant puzzle will come back at some point, but it won’t be before April, so I have more time.
First, I finished the center of one rosette and I was thrilled.
The colors aren’t really my style, but I was too exhausted to make any changes.
I do kind of like the fussy cut parrots. I know I have been saying that I am not using many of the animals, but I like the colorful quality of these parrots, so I used them. They don’t scream “this is a Tula quilt” to me. I may be deluding myself.
Lindsay pointed out that she didn’t like the alternating fabrics (pentagons). I realized it is not a favorite either. My go-to response is that in the grand scheme of the whole quilt, it won’t be that noticeable. Also, as I have said before, I bought the fabric option and I need to use it.
Now I am back to finishing up Month 3. I might be able to finish it tonight.
We are now 1/3 of the way finished with this project. Can you believe it? Time has flown by.
