If I hadn’t listed those three things on here this morning, only one thing would have been done. By the time I finished the 10 blocks for the orange quilt, I was tired and ready to stop. But, since I’d proclaimed to the world, or at least to my blog readers, that I was going to get the binding on a quilt and get another quilt loaded . . I had to do it. It didn’t help that I stopped in the middle of the day to make the batch of Speck food (which I’ll share how I do that tomorrow) and then I made homemade hamburger buns for our grilled burgers tonight. Do not make those homemade hamburger buns! If you do, you’ll never ever buy hamburger buns again and for the rest of your life, you’ll have to make homemade hamburger buns. I made the mistake of making them a month or so ago and I don’t believe we’ll ever buy buns again.
About that orange quilt . .
This is what it was going to look like. It was going to be about 80″ x 102″. Bobby (the groom) was here today. He walked right past the design wall with his quilt on it and had no idea it was for him. After he left, Chad said “I hope you know they have a queen size bed.” I explained that the quilt was going to be more just to hang over a quilt rack or fold at the foot of the bed. NO! Chad wanted it to fit the bed. Apparently it bugs him that I just make quilts without regard to bed sizes and he thinks quilts should fit beds. The boy should be an engineer.
Together we worked on the design. We took off the bottom row of blocks and added more borders. Now it’s going to be about 89″ x 100″.
The 12″ blocks are all made. Vince is off tomorrow so I can only hope to (1) put all the blocks into rows and (2) quilt the top on the longarm.
