In my last post I was to clean off my cutting table so I can get ready to finish up some of the UFOs I have. Well that never happen last night. As I also mention that I am a procrastinator when it comes to starting projects that are time sensitive. Well before the cutting table looked like it does, I was working on a time sensitive project for an upcoming showing on a concept from Ladyscrapbag (Carolyn) after a trip to New York on the Red & White Quilt Exhibit last year. A lot of us signed up to also do Red & White Quilts, back in March, quilts where to be completed by December 30th (just needed a finish picture and measurement). My original quilt idea never made my slow quilting skills, and as you know it I did not start my project until December 26. Yah, I hear you, why did you wait until the last minute? What can I say, I am the Slow Quilter.
Well to make a long story short, I had finished the block for the required measurements an incomplete photo. So my problem was how to quilt it. If I have not said this before, I love to quilt and putting blocks together, but I do not like to actually quilt. I am good with stitch-n-the- ditch and outlining, put quilt designs I am not good at. I would rather send them out to have them quilted. So that is what I did last night, outlined the quilt. All I have to say is “Thank God for monofilament thread”. Only thing I have to finish on the quilt is attaching the binding which I will do on Thursday. We need to turn in the quilts by January 30th. Will it be finish then? Yes it will be. I do plan to add a little sparkle to it when I finish it.
