Wishing You Good Will…Hand Quilt Along

Is it just me or has time sped up?

Since joining the Hand Quilt Along, 3 week posting intervals feels more like I am moving backwards in time and then again, time seems like it is set to fast forward. Time has never moved more quickly for me….can this be possible, moving backwards as well as forward at the same time?

So here we are again and not much progress has been accomplished on my Goodwill $3.99 wedding ring quilt top find. Spring has sprung and this winter project sits sadly begging to be finished. I am feeling a little guilty. Progress is slow.  I had hoped for completion of this beauty by the end of winter. Had I set an unrealistic goal? Time told the tale and the answer, whether I like it our not, is yes.


In this 3 week interval from my last posting I have decided to call this quilt

    That name is perfect for the obvious reasons, but also because we quilters spread goodwill (I hope) with our craft. When we see beauty in fabric I think it transfers to good will towards those around us too. 💐

      Thank you. I love the name too. I totally agree, in fact anything handmade spreads good will. There is something really special about wrapping up a handmade gifted quilt. 🙂

    I like to name my quilts and it bothers me when something “right” doesn’t come to mind. I love yours. Keep up the good work!

      I actually have never named a quilt with the exception ‘this is my Christmas Quilt or the Ocean Quilt’ or its pattern name. Thanks for the encouragement too.

    That’s a great name! And the quilt will get done and it will be lovely–don’t worry about the timing. I’ve learned, I’m afraid, that these quilt-along sessions are stress- and guilt-producing . . .

      Thanks Kerry. First time naming a quilt for me. The quilt spoke to me, lol. Yes, there does tend to be this self imposed pressure to produce. Taking time to smell the flowers along the way 🙂

      I am feeling pretty positive now about the outcome and a big thank you on the ‘name’


I would love to hear from you
