Well, hello there!

Judi Madsen Quilting 
I don't even know where to start with this post.  It has been so long since I have even looked at my blog.  It seems that every time I thought to blog - I just didn't have anything to say. Weird, eh? 

I feel like most of my attention is on Facebook and Instagram.  I am sad that I haven't been on here for so long, but hopefully that will change. If not, follow me on Facebook and Instagram - I post there. ;-)

So, why has it taken me so long to post?  Well, truthfully - I haven't had a project I could share.  I have been working on quilts for my next book and I have had to keep the sneak peeks to a minimum.  The above picture is a reflection of how the book process is going.  Looks great, right?  Well, that's because you haven't seen the entire quilt.  It's probably not what people would consider a bad quilt, but for me - it wasn't good enough.  I just can't justify sharing a quilt in my book that isn't my version of perfect.  It's tough though, because it's a quilt that took over 40 hours of quilting.  So, committing to redo the quilt is going to be hard.  

On top of that, I have just been in a creative funk.  Seriously.  I spent the spring time traveling to teach and being gone, too much.  So, I have really, really enjoyed my time with my family this summer. 

No worries though, I am back in the studio - trying to get projects finished and I am fighting through the burnout I have felt this past 6 months. I have a teaching event coming up in October in Minnesota and that should be really fun. It just seems that time moves too quickly and trying to keep up with deadlines and schedules can be a little tricky, but I am doing the best I can.  

Thank you to all of you for your patience with me on this blog.  I look forward to sharing projects as I complete them, I have some customer quilts coming up so I will be able to share those as I finish. We'll talk soon.
