Cleaning will do that to you!
What a difference a day (or two ... or four) will make. This was Sunday.
So much for a clean work table!
I decided that, before I got back to projects in progress, I'd do a little more cleaning of the work table. Some of those project boxes had been there since 2008 -- and before!
It was time to make some decisions: Am I going to finish, modify, or trash?

- class with Karen Stone at Indiana Heritage Quilt Show 2008
The class left a lot to be desired and for a time I was considering just trashing the project as paper piecing is not really my forte.
However, seeing it now I think I will continue with the full quilt. All the chunks are cut and it has great possibilities.

- class with Susan Cleveland at Tennessee QuiltFest 2009
Susan is an excellent teacher and I am glad I have her piping tool, but I don't see myself making the entire quilt. I will look for something to include my one block in and recycle the hand-dyed fabrics I had planned to use. I do plan to use a piped border on an upcoming project so the class was not a total waste.

I lost my enthusiasm for this project when it got to the machine applique on the corners. I think I like the star and may try to work it into a simple wall hanging with plain fabric for the corners and side triangles.
- class with Nancy Mahoney at Mountain Quiltfest 2012
Did I mention that I'm not a fan of paper piecing? Nevertheless, I was determined to finish and plugged on with the B blocks (corner units) for several week before putting it aside.
However, the A units weren't going together very well -- turns out one of the chunks needed to be about a quarter inch bigger. So I will be recutting the last few pieces in order to finish the last 27 units. Still need to select a sashing fabric and it will be an easy finish!
