Babe has been on a Big Bang Theory kick so I had plenty of time to work on my cross-stitch this week. Progress, baby!
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.
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. 🙂
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*
A big thanks to Hugh Jackman and the release of Reel Steel. Because of it (and my lack of desire to see it), Mike was busy watching the movie and I rocked the cross-stitching scene! Woot! I think I can officially say that I’ve hit the halfway point.
