True confessions of a stalled out WiP

Dear Shayne,

You know the pillow I posted yesterday? True confession time: that pillow was made from two hearts that are supposed to make up an entire Valentine-y quilt. All of the rest of the pieces are cut, but those are the only two hearts that were ever sewn together.

This is a "work in progress" that is clearly not progressing at all -- in fact, it's more of a "work in regress."

I took a photo of it awhile back to show as a "WiP," but I was too ashamed to post it. Perhaps posting it now will motivate me to finish it? Let's see:

(Pizza boxes make nice flat containers for quilt blocks in progress. Don't say I never gave ya any good tips!)

My parents were married 6 years ago, so this project is probably going on 7. Wow. I took this class with Jenny and I can't believe it's been that long. (Jenny, do you still have the pieces for yours?) If anyone else is interested, you can still buy the pattern here.

Huh. I just realized that I was talking to my friend Jan (Hi, Jan!) yesterday about whether or not we would post a project that we had stalled out on for over 2 years. I guess we now know my answer: Yup!

pizza boxes...I never would have thought of that...I guess as long as you got the kind without extra cheese!

HAHAHAHA, bettyninja! I guess I should have clarified: *new* pizza boxes!

I just went to Domino's and asked for a few and they gave 'em to me. I've heard of other places charging 25 cents or so, but that's still a bargain.

I can look...but I doubt it. Boy, the good old days when we used to take quilting classes together! I'll let you know if I find mine.
