Hi! Quilting Friends! The last few months have been full of work, work, work. To be honest I get tired of work...who doesn't. While I love designing new quilts, the writing of patterns takes away from my real love....making them! So this past Saturday I decided to take a day off from the work part and just throw together something that someone else designed. Something that wouldn't require a lot of time. When I found this video tutorial it was apparent this quilt fit my needs. The large 18.5 x 14.5 blocks have 8 pieces in them so you can make a big quilt quick. Here's a link to the video tutorial I used.
The tutorial called for less blocks and a different sashing layout. If I can get permission from the designer I'll share my measurement adjustments when the quilt is finished. (Friday)
The cutting for this quilt started on Saturday around noon. By Sunday around 1pm I had a completed quilt top! WOOHOO! That's quick! No cooking, no cleaning, and I kinda threw hygiene out the window. A quick brush of my teeth and I was ready to power sew in my jammies.
My hopes was to have it finished, quilted and bound by midnight Sunday. After all the power sewing I pooped out after a few technical difficulties with my quilting. But I'm back on track and things are progressing quickly again. What a fun challenge and change of pace. Do you ever push yourself just to see if you can do it?
See you soon with the finish!
If you leave a comment I may not be able to respond by email due to some glitches in Blogger since a new GDPR regulation. It has something to do with cookies and how my blog handles email addresses. No, I don't share them or store them anywhere but some brilliant politicians overseas thought it was a good idea to make these changes that effect the whole world. So if you would like a response via email you might want to leave your email in the comment. Otherwise I can only reply to your comments in the comments section. Hopefully Blogger will have this issue fixed soon. Thanks for you understanding and continuing to visit my blog.
