This is one of the quilts I really wanted to get done while on our girls trip. I had everything cut out in case I could find the time.
Yesterday since I only had Mason man I started stitching up a few squares, 72 to be exact.
Then moved on to trimming them all up.
What the heck, might as well put a few of the whole quilt squares together.
Tonight I finished the last of the quilt squares 24 in all. This quilt top will for sure be done over the weekend!
Now on to the clean up before bed, UGH
I was so into making quilt squares after Mason left yesterday I just kept at it....until WAY past my bedtime. I paid dearly for that late night today I can tell you. After dropping off Mason and Karsyn today I jumped in to finish the rest of the quilt squares then packed them up. I am afraid this quilt is going to turn out a little to white for my tastes but until its put together I won't know.
My food basket is ready to go along with all the recipes, laundry is done and clothes are packed. In the morning I hope to finish packing the car so we can get on the road Saturday morning bright and early.
I am keeping track of the time I have put into this quilt, so far 19 hours. I have had many ladies ask how long it takes me to make one of the larger quilts. I have no idea, maybe I can remember to track the rest of the time it takes so I have a better idea of the time involved.
Off to sweep the floor then on to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. I have all 3 little ones as well as pick up and delivery since SIL #1 is out of town. Nothing like fighting morning rush hour traffic then back at it in the afternoon Friday night rush hour. I HATE DRIVING!!!
