Has anyone done one of these ,I did a course recently with DA and really enjoyed it and am finding the idea of doing one of these quite attractive .

Keep telling myself I haven't got time but still keep coming back to it . Seems like a good way to practice lots of techniques , have a bit of fun and end up with a lovely cushion at the end of it .

No idea, sorry. But a friend if mine designed a mystery quilt and it was good fun following the instructions without knowing the final result...

Yes it's a bit like that, it takes five months, she also does a blanket but that's a bit pricey for me and over a year.A bit of me says you have enough things you want to knit on your plate blushbut this seemed a good way of practicing techniques and ending up with a lovely cushion in the end ,oh dear am talking myself into it againblush

Ok. What else are you doing and what time scales do you have? (trying to help with objectivity, I sometimes list stuff, which makes me realise I need to finish things, not start more....)

Well..... How long have you got.Actually it's about deciding what I'd rather do isn't it .At the moment I have a cushion which needs sewing up ,am finishing an accessory project which I started on this course I went on at the weekend.Must finish the socks which I started for dh , will try to get the heel turned this weekend as once that's done they are pretty quick.Also want to knit a small wrap/ shawl for a friend who is very unwell .

After that its about deciding on the next big project , have my eye on a huge intarsia cushion in a book I had for Xmas but that would be a big one , hmmmm decisions .

Haha. sounds about as decisive as me! grin. I don't understand half of what you just Saud (quilter, not knitter) but it sounds like me. I have about 4 things in various states of being finished. I finished one over the holiday and started another ad o I'm not any better off at all!

The thing is I enjoy the making but not the finishing"if you see what I mean. I do also have a disaster project which is lurking at the bottom of my bag which I keep promising myself I will sort out but keep getting distracted . Dh finds it all a bit perplexing I think

ditto. finishing is the hardest bit. My disaster project was a pile of badly sized blocks that I decided to get finished and cut them all down to the same size. the quilt is now smaller than intended but nearly finished and not nearly as hated now! grin
