Well, the long weekend is winding down and I don't have a quilt top to show for it. Not even close! This one may take a while!
Of course it doesn't help the piecing cause when I have other things to occupy my time.
Saturday.....my once in every couple years whim to get my hair colored. That took out a large chunk of my Saturday.
I covered the gray and added some RED! Can you see it? I maybe chickened out on the boldness of it and am now kicking myself. I want MORE of it!
Saturday evening I did get some more strip sets sewn.
Sunday morning, I finished up the strip sets.....all 130 of them. And then had the pleasure of the company of Miss Avery for a while.
She's getting so big! She has two bottom teeth now...and can army crawl like the best of them....too much fun!
Sunday night...I decided to burn the midnight oil and get those strip sets pressed. Mission accomplished by about 1:00AM this morning!
Today...the subcutting began.
I thought I was cruising right along.....counting 288 subcuts...when I realized I still have a LOT of strip sets left. Well DUH! 288 subcuts were for ONE set of blocks. I need to subcut 288 MORE units for the other set.
I took a break from the subcutting and started getting 4 patch units sewn. This is going to have a LOT of pieces, but I just know I'm going to love this one, so it will be worth the time to make it an oversized queen!
This still awaits....
as does the work week. *sigh* But....only 4 more days until I can do some more non-stop sweat shop sewing! Yes...this may take a while, but good things come to those who wait!
