Today I Start

I’ve been thinking about and collecting fabric for a project for quite some time now. And I’ve finally reached a point where I have to DO something! Because, of course, I NEED another project!!!!! šŸ˜‰

So today is the day. I’m going to take the collected fabric and start cutting. I may only get some cutting done today, but I’m going to DO IT!!!

Here’s the fabric:


Homespun plaids and black. I think it will make a very masculine looking quilt. I’m just going to do a simple double nine patch block, with black sashing and borders. And, if I can ever make a big enough chunk of time to use the Fun Quilter, I’m just going to do a meandering quilting design so that I can finish it fairly quickly. We’ll see how that goes.

I was able to finish a quilt in one week this year:


but I had a serious deadline and it was a gift for my dad. So DH didn’t grouse too much about the disaster that the rest of the house became, while I sewed every minute of the day and night!!! I have a feeling that he might not be as accommodating since this one is for my own enjoyment and therefore does not (in his opinion) need to be concentrated on so intensely!

Well, I guess I better get off the computer and get cutting. Because I have heard one thing: It’s hard to finish a quilt that you aren’t working on!!
