As I've "grown up" in quilting, I've noticed that some quilters are ultra organized and methodical. They wash and press their fabric, work on one quilt at a time, do all their cutting before they take a single stitch, assemble all their blocks or panels before they even think of putting them together and keep quilt parts separated and marked. I've often viewed this as the more "mature-responsible" way to quilt, akin to keeping a balanced checkbook, eating vegetables before dessert and never peeking at the end of the book. I assumed that "one day" I would be a grown up quilter who had attained this more perfected condition. As time passes, I'm starting to realize that it's probably not going to happen. I still have a minimum of 6 projects under way at all times, still add drawings to my notebook faster that I can sew them up, still have to cut for awhile, sew for awhile just to get a sneak preview of what the finished design will look like, and still find more joy in the finished product than the construction process. I suppose it's more a matter of work style and temperament than maturity so I'll try not to sweat it and just be thankful that it's not math test where showing the work process is required. Is there a right or a wrong style? Probably not, I think I'll just settle into who I am and go pick out fabric for another project.
