I am not going to finish the Journal Quilts challenge - it's a shame but something has to give.
The JQS challenge is set by the Contemporary Quilt group of the Quilters Guild. Each month participants submit a small JQ to a dedicated web site and build up 12 over the year.
I managed to do 8 of the 12. But I am not going to beat myself up about the last 4. I was very hesitant to start the project in the first place, but in the end thought 'what the heck'.
So why not finish? Well, simply, time. The making is ok, it's the designing that is more time consuming, and while I did treat these as more of a Sketchbook process the last four simply ran away with me. I have the ideas still in my head, but I don't have time to execute them. I will blame Jane and 'The Tree and Me' exhibition!
