Since it is the end of the month, I am supposed to be working on invoices for DH. And I did make a start. But I know that I need to post before noon, if I’m going to post at all, so I am taking a break. DH will just have to understand what is the higher priority – obviously quilting!!!! Although invoicing so that we have an income does come in a very close second!! After all, how will I be able to get new fabric for quilting if we don’t have an income!?!
I’m still excavating in the sewing room. There is so much in there that it is hard to figure out what to do with it all. I am definitely pulling older fabrics that don’t speak to me to go into donation quilts. It’s getting to be quite a pile. But I am also finding WIPs that I want to finish, but just don’t have the time (even if I could sew all day, every day, it would be many years before I get caught up!!)
I may have posted about this one once before, but I really want to get this finished sometime. The problem is that since it is made of such small pieces it takes forever to make just one little block. And I want to make this a bed size quilt!! So it is going to be a long time until I can finish it! Especially since I am already working on the tiny little log cabin blocks for a bed size quilt. I really love the style – tiny little blocks for a large quilt.
Fortunately, I do make some quilts with larger pieces or I would not get very many quilts made. Here is the one I’m working on for DH:
and here are the fabrics that I think I will use to add a border:
This will be a just barely twin size quilt when finished with the borders. I’m going to cut the three fabrics at 2 1/2″ which will add a six inch border all the way around. DH was very happy to see that I had worked on this for him. What he doesn’t know is that this is fitting into my diabolical plan to get a long arm quilter. Because it is a bigger quilt, I won’t be able to quilt it on my home sewing machine. So I will “HAVE TO” use a long arm quilter to get it finished!! This will go into the pile of other quilts that require a long arm quilter. Once he sees how many quilts there are to be finished and I explain how much it would cost to have them finished by someone else, surely he will realize that it would be better in the long run for me to have my own long arm quilter!! At least that is how I hope my diabolical plan will work!!!
