Isn’t it just amazing how that happens? We are no longer languishing in yesterday! Instead here we are in today! And the promised pictures!
First I finished this–it took me more than a year but that’s because at some point in the fall I realized I had made a mistake and would have to rip seams to fix it. It seemed like a gigantic ordeal then. Saturday it took almost no time to rip the seams and restitch them correctly. Viola!
Then Saturday afternoon I started on this project for my cousin’s anticipated bundle of joy. It took around 6 hours split between Saturday and yesterday. I would have had it finished on Saturday but I didn’t have the batting. I know, I know, how awful, a visit to the local quilt shop. I was brave. I promise. 🙂
Then I decided to make Mr. T and I a big old (okay, brand new) picnic blanket. So I found the most garish, festive, and lively prints I could. Here’s what happened!
So, I’ve been busy being creative and have totally slacked on other duties like cooking and cleaning. Mr. T doesn’t mind though I think he believes the pregnancy books that say I might be feeling more creative and that it is important for the baby that I fulfill these whims. 🙂 I’m lucky that way. DISCLAIMER! Before you say, “Impossible! There is no way you did all that in just 9 hours!” Just know that the log cabin quilt (the top pictures) and the picnic blanket are only pieced, they aren’t completely finished with batting and backing. These are too large for me to quilt myself so they are outsourced. I will drop them off next week as a finished top, finished back, batting ,and binding, and get a professionally assembled and quilted quilt back! It is exciting! Oh, and remember that the log cabin quilt was 97% completed but languishing in the “have to rip the seam” basket. Oh, and I sew like I’m driving a race car! 😀
