I've talked before about my tendency to become obsessive over projects. I quite like being obsessive, because I get so much done when I'm like that. I've spent weeks choosing fabrics and cutting up a small mountain of it, but I wouldn't call that obsessive, that was just focused; nothing I couldn't stop. I had it all under control.
Then, I had an idea for the 16-patches that have been sitting forlornly on a chair, waiting for me to sew them together any old how, just so I could call it done.
It was so much fun to do, I had to concentrate very hard, but it was just simple straight seams. I would have saved myself a lot of unpicking if I'd slowed down and checked each piece before I sewed it, but that's obsession for you. And I'm awfully good at unpicking, having done so much in my time. There's lots of computer work to be going on with, but I'm glad I made time for this. I have 2 more seams, and then the border, so hopefully I will be able to show the finished quilt in a day or two.
While I was madly sewing the blocks together, and unpicking it all and sewing it the right way, I made more 9-patch units for my Triple Irish Chain, 60 of them in fact.
