This Girl

by Nicole

This girl is waiting patiently as I take care of some other things in my life.


I’ve got the top done and I pieced the backing, although I’m not crazy about the backing and am deliberating on whether or not to change it. I’m tempted to leave it as is, but then again, I’d hate to look back on it when it’s done and wish I had changed it. The problem is that I need to buy more fabric, which would mean a trip to my LQS, spending time that I can’t spare right now.

But, as soon as things quiet down around here, I’ll have some time to get the extra fabric and then have a basting party with the Children at Play.

Hopefully, I won’t have to keep this girl and the other girls waiting much longer.

decisions, decisions….sometimes I make a 'mediocre' decision, but once it's all done & quilted, I decide it's just right. I know you'll make the right decision for you though….the girlies are sure cute.

I'm sure whatever you decide the end result will be beautiful! Love that block in your pic!

I'm with you on this one! I know that things that aren't quite right will bug me and bug me no matter what. I hope things get less hectic soon and you can enjoy some you-time in your LQS.

I love the blocks you've shown so far! I can't wait to see the whole quilt–I think it's going to be way too cute. 🙂

I expected to see a picture of one of your little girls! Hope all is well. 🙂

I've been there too. You'll be happy that you made it the way you want it. There's nothing worse than looking at a project and saying, "If only I'd taken the time…"

Change it, you'll have the quilt for years and you'll always be bothered by the backing. That's my advice for the day!
It's looking really cute!

What a lovely block! Such a pretty fussy-cut print – not seen that one before but it's lovely. Can't wait to see the whole quilt finished.

This is such a special quilt that I think you need to be 100% on the backing. It isn't going anywhere & will wait patiently for you to find just the right one. It is a lovely quilt, I can't wait to see how you finish it up.

Aww, good luck with your decision and finding more time!

That's such a cute sneak!
I'm sure something will comet to you when you least expect it! =D

I love that sweet little girl peeking out from the block! My advice is to listen to that little voice inside you – its your intuition and its usually right!! You'll be glad in the long run if you get the back just right.

I just wanted to say that I used the paper plate idea for a granny square quilt that I wanted to put aside for awhile. Great idea.

I'd take your time too, and wait till you've got time to get the new backing. Otherwise it will always remind you of a stressful time when you rushed things. Good luck, hope life calms down soon!

Wow, this is gorgeous! Hope you get time to finish it soon.
