I recently finished three quilts that I started over 2 years ago. As I was finishing the binding on the last one, I paused to admire my craftsmanship and promised myself that I would never make any of these patterns again!
And not so much because they were difficult, but more so the time consumption. Honestly, I cannot even say that because most quilt making is time-consuming. I guess I just dreaded the process of these three more than any others I’ve made thus far.
Sparkle Punch is an Elizabeth Hartman tutorial. The stars are actually onomatopoeias, “those “Pow!” and “Bam!” shapes that happen when cartoon characters punch each other”. I dubbed my quilt, Merry Sparkle Punch because I made it with Christmassy prints.
I wanted to make this next one in the worst way after I saw my friend Greta’s, Nigata Traveler better known as Arkansas Traveler. Soon after, she sent me all the beautiful lozenges I needed to make my own. I used a combo of her tutorial and this tutorial which includes a paper pieced template to construct my blocks. I named my quilt, Autumn Arkansas Traveler because of the saturated colors of Fall it contains.
Lastly is the Spider Web quilt I named Halloween Scrappy Webs. I used this tutorial. It was supposed to be twice the size it is, but after a while, I just couldn’t bring myself to make one more block, and the fabric waste was incredible!
I love love love, how each of these finished up. And I’m so glad I persisted and had the sticktoitiveness to get them finished, but on my honor, cross my heart, I will never make any of these patterns again!
Is there a pattern that you would NEVER make again? Do tell!
Thanks for stopping by.
God bless and happy stitchin’!

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. –Heb 10:23-25
