I wonder if any other quilters have felt this way. I am afraid that I am experiencing quilting burnout. You see since April 2007, when I first started quilting, I've made 139 quilts. That is a lot. That is passion. Of those, I've given away 96, then I chuckle when trying to figure out where the other 43 are?? I don't have that many on my beds. I suppose a lot of those are the smaller wall hanging, table cover quilts.
Anyway....I am having trouble working on my latest.
I love the pattern, the scrappiness of it, the fact that I am using fabric scraps I have, but still.....I am finding it hard to work on it. This is the first time since 2007 that I haven't made at least one quilt a month. Here it is May and I have only one finish this year.
Have any of you quilters out there experienced quilting burnout? There are so many beautiful ones yet to be made. I wonder if my trouble is I can't see the finish line for my current project. I've learned my driver is to finish something....I figured this quilt, to be a nice queen size, needs over 200 blocks...I've made 32. The end is not in sight. Each block takes a while to make.
I'm looking for advice here......should I start something new that I know I can finish fairly quickly? I do have the fabric and pattern for a twin size, large block quilt for Emma. Maybe I should start it
I've spent a lot of time with my running passion the last few months, but right now I've cooled it a bit trying to get my knee to heal. Maybe now is the time to start something new and exciting......but UFOs drive me crazy, I hate to leave this one. I am a finisher.
