The Beginning of a Triple Irish Chain Quilt

Ever have one of those projects that you’re terrified to start, something new you’re trying and you want it to be the most amazing thing you’ve ever made? That would be me right now. I have a quilt I really need to start making, and it’s the most challenging one I’ve ever made. In all honesty, it shouldn’t be too difficult, but it’s the first one I haven’t just “gone with the flow” with. I know exactly what I want. I have directions telling me how to make it happen. And I am TERRIFIED!! There are so many TINY squares! It also doesn’t help that I ordered the fabric online, so if I realize I need more at any point, I can’t just run up to the store and buy some more. I will definitely be checking (and re-checking) before every cut for this quilt! (Once I get the courage to start it, that is.)

I’ll be turning this….

…into this! (Different colors of course, you’ll have to use your imagination a bit for now. I’ll post a new picture once it’s done.)

I could just be too much of a perfectionist when it comes to things I make. And am entirely way too hard on myself. Hopefully soon I can find the time to get over my fear of this quilt, and prove me wrong for being so terrified!

Check out some of the baby blankets I’ve already made! (Don’t forget to “like” J.E. Creations if you haven’t already, or subscribe to my blog using the button on the right.)
