Along with a new year, comes new resolutions and commitments. I had thought about starting this project and then my friend Kate told me she was buying the bundle for the La Passacaglia quilt and starting on January 1. I decided to join her because it is fun and motivational to work on a project with a friend. Mass Drop was offering the whole kit and you could add the book if you needed it.
After receiving the kit, I browsed the book and all of the patterns. Amazing! As time got closer to start the La Passacaglia, I studied the pattern so I would be ready to go. Being a visual learner, I appreciated all of the pictures and diagrams provided. I plan on making at least 2 of the large rosettes first because I want them in specific colors and decided it would be easier to to make those then decide on fabrics for the smaller rosettes that are in-between.
I pulled for both rosettes all at once and set the fabric aside. My daughter, Lucy, helped with the fabric pulls and I loved having another opinion. Having my daughter’s around to ask questions when I’m working on projects is so fun! I am grateful for their input and remind myself to enjoy this time in life with them so close by me. As I progress through, I may change my mind, but pulling all the fabric made it easier for me because my fabric is stored in bins in a couple of different places.
I’m not sure how long this project will take. I’m still working on the Lucy Boston EPP so both projects will be worked on in tandem. I’m happy to start this and excited to learn as I go.
