It’s a millstone around my neck, weighing me down, taking up room and stash fabric.
My nephew’s quilt. I started this in April 2013, following along with the Virtual Quilting Bee at Diary of a Quilter. When I told my sister, she said, you know he has a queen size bed, right? That’s a big quilt.
Well, darn it, I’m the maker, and I decided that I can make any size quilt that I want. How many blocks have I done? 15 — let’s make it 16. Hey, it looks pretty good on point. What if I add some “B” alternate blocks using the Alphabetty fabric. Yep, that looks good.
I think this will end up about 70″ square. So my Lovely Year of Finishes goal for September is to get this quilt top finished (and maybe I’ll give myself bonus points if it’s basted too). The entire quilt is on my Q3 Finish-A-Long list but…not so realistic.
