On my very first Wednesday as an unemployed woman, I wanted to do a “Wordless Wednesday” post However, I’m not quite capable of putting up pictures without words (at least not until a project is done). So here’s what I’m working on.
The pink and green quilt…oy. I’m going to do a “tell all” when the quilt is done, but here’s a little taste of what I’ve done (and undone) so far. Also, please forgive the bad lighting in all of these pictures…I have no good excuse.
Remember that song, “one of these things is not like the other…?” Do you SEE the problem here? Ok, first let me tell you, I did that with the ENTIRE first two rows. I wasn’t going to tell anyone. Evidently, I wanted a quilt full of diagonal rows rather than diamonds. So I sat down and ripped out all of those seams, turned the squares around and reassembled. Game over, no one would be the wiser. Right? THEN I DID IT AGAIN! I wanted to SMACK myself. I couldn’t believe, after all that pain and suffering, I did it twice (well, three times actually). So as a punishment and hopefully a lesson to myself, I’m telling you.
Here’s where I am now. All rows are sewn together. Half are pressed. Half are not. Hopefully I’ll have a top all sewn up soon, then I’m planning on quilting it to echo the diagonals. Now I just have to find a backing fabric.
AND this came in the mail for me today! I’m going to ATTEMPT to make one of these beauties for my sister-in-law’s wedding in a few weeks. We’ll see how it goes 🙂
