Do you ever get hung up on the 'perfect' fabric choice?
Do you have some unfinished projects that are waiting to be quilted? Sometimes for me, picking out a backing fabric can really get me stuck. Once I have the quilt back made and loaded on the frame, the quilting is easy, especially if I can load enough backing fabric to quilt several quilts at the same time, one after another.
I'm trying to learn to be more organized so I can get several quilts that will match and I can pick out backing fabric that will go well with all of the quilt tops. I seem to get slowed down when I have to make decisions, so the fewer decisions I have to make, the better I do.
I miss my daughter who is my fabric picker. She's really good at matching fabrics and when she is home, she helps me a lot by picking fabrics that go well together. Sometimes I just have to make a choice and go with it. I have to give up on the idea of the 'perfect' fabric since I work from stash and don't always have an unlimited supply to choose from. Once I make the choice, the quilting goes quickly.
