Teal Dragon Quilts

A world of Quilts and Dragons!

Been busy!

on March 13, 2017

Humming along.  Lots of progress with my quilting.  I almost got stuck on the quilt for a cousin, but like magic, it got done.  No, really, like magic.  The quilt uses huge blocks that are made up of 16 smaller blocks.  I needed 6 of the big blocks to make the quilt.  I did a lot of sewing a to b and c to d, then b to c.  I then had rows for the blocks.  Next was 1 to 2 and 3 to 4, then 2 to 3.  I then had the big blocks.  I had 6 of everything, 6 a’s, 6 ‘bs, etc.  When I’m sewing it seems like a lot, so I count how many I have done and how many to go.  Something like this…One, six to go; two, four to go, three, three to go.  Then the magic happens!  four, TWO to go.  The small blocks are only 6 1/2″ so it’s not like there is a whole lot to stitch that will take hours.  But in my mind…

I have a book called “The Inner Game of Music”, it’s modeled after the one titled “The Inner Game of Golf”.  Maybe I should do one “The Inner Game of Quilting”?  The books are about ways to be better thru the use of the brain.  With music one of the ways was to THINK about practice.  In detail..Imagine holding the instrument, playing each note. Visualizing.

The “little voice” inside my head is a fear monger.  I shush mine with loud positive affirmations.  I’ve been successful this month!  Hope you are too!  Enjoy the pictures of what I have done since my last post!
