Most of the afternoon was spent in the sewing room working on Addie’s “big girl bed” quilt. I’m thinking at the rate I’m going, I should maybe change the name to Addie’s Graduation Quilt! Normally, when I make a quilt, I’ll make all the components first and then start building the blocks but this one, I’ve been kinda flying by the seat of my pants and making each block as I go so that when I put it down for weeks or months and come back, I cannot figure out where I left off or how to make each part.
Today I said . . I’m staying in here til I get all the hard parts done! And I did!
Five more star blocks to make and the center of the quilt will be done. I’ll go ahead and sew it all together. There are a few fiddly border blocks to be made but I think the hard part is over and I should be able to get this top done pretty quickly.
How long has it been since I finished a quilt top? Too long!
