Okay, you are about to see how quickly and easily I crack under pressure...
This quilt has been in my closet on and off for at least the past 11 years-yes, it is older than my son.
It was supposed to be a double wedding ring that is done using foundation piecing. It is one of the major reasons I DO NOT DO FOUNDATION PIECING!!
So, after 11 years and only 6 blocks finished towards a king size quilt, I decided it was time to do something different.
So, I took the corner pieces that I had made a lot of and rethought my design.
Sunlight and Shadow from www.quilterscache.com
Yes, you are reading my note correctly-I need to make 50 BLOCKS! I have a huge bed!
Thankfully I was able to pick up some of the old fabrics- they still had the same ones after 11 years???? And of course I had to mix in some new ones but I do not think it will be a problem. It already looks very scrappy.
After an hour and 30 minutes this morning, I have ironed the fabric and cut out 300 color, 300 white 3.5 inch squares and 200 of each 3 7/8" squares and then cut these into triangles. Here I am, all prepared...
I should use this as a leaders and enders project but I want it done faster than that-and it allows me to successfully avoid binding my daughter's quilt-Can you tell that binding is NOT my favorite part????
So, I did some laundry and had my second breakfast-thirdsies will come later- and so now I can go back to the sewing room, right?
