Here's what I have done, on my final quilt from my retreat last week. Progress has been made, but there is much more to go. I discovered, while on the retreat, the reason I don't generally do traditional quilts with multiple versions of the same block. I get bored easily. Small quilts are much more interesting - they are done before I'm bored. Large quilts tend to hit a wall. If I plan well, I have enough alternate blocks and I can hop back and forth between them, and keep my interest up that way.
Or, failing that, I start a new project. Which is what happened this weekend. Actually, I wasn't that bored yet, although I could feel the wall approaching. But I decided there is another quilt I want to make, on a deadline, and so I hopped over to that one. All the pieces are cut out - and now I realize that it has many blocks all the same too. Maybe if I work the 2 quilts together, they'll both get done (and hopefully won't end up with pieces of each other integrated into them) :)
And remember the nice tidy cutting table I should you a week ago? Well, it is no longer. I pulled fabric for this new quilt off the shelf, and of course everything else fell down. I have 3 quilts in progress and thus bits and pieces of all 3 clutter the table again.
Once these current quilts are done, I will set some time aside to clean (again) and see if I can actually find this couch. If I can do that, I may actually be able to move it out of my sewing room and gain some space for quilting.
