The Pokequilt is done! *cue choir singing*
Funny story, when I started piecing the quilt together last week, I kept looking at my pile of 1.75″ squares and thinking, “Dude, there are a lot of squares left”. Then I dismissed it because, really, math was never my strong suit. Then, after I pieced together the 35 blocks, I realized that I needed to make a border of black and white squares around the entire quilt before I added the colored border. Suddenly those extra squares made sense, LOL.
So, quilt top of the year is done. I plan on hand quilting this while I start working on A’s quilt top.
Babe only watched one action movie –Live Free or Die Hard–so, I didn’t get a ton done on the cross stitch this week. But, I did get the the left border which is a good thing. I can finally see what I’m working towards! 😀 😀
I came, I saw, I sewed.
|I conquered the rows!
I still have another three rows to piece together. Then it’s border time! Woot!
Once I finish this quilt top, then it’s onto A’s quilt. We’re still trying to figure out what she’s wanting, but one thing is for certain, it will have lots of yellow in it. 🙂
Er, ok, so the week count isn’t right. But, it has been like over two years since I first put needle to thread. At least I’m finally making steady progress on this project. Who knows? Christmas 2012 may be the year that everyone sees this sucker framed, LOL.
It’s all about progress! 😀 😀
Things were pretty quiet around here which made working on K’s quilt easy! Not only did I piece together all of the B blocks, I also did all of the ironing *shudder*
The plan this week is to start piecing the blocks together, but with everything going on this week –a dentist appointment, helping out in A’s class, and regular non-quilting stuff–we’ll see how much I actually get done.
I’m already eying fabric for A’s quilt, but I’m resolute to only work on one quilt at a time. *tries to stay strong*
