I was going about my merry way, planning today's post to say I have been quilting for the last two weeks but have nothing to show for it. Just cutting some scraps, organizing the sewing room, finishing quilting Boundless.
I even figured I could show you my library stack to keep the post from being too boring. I went to the main library recently and gathered these books.
Then I thought, is Project Quilting over? And sauntered my way to the website to find out. Nope, there is one last project, and it is due in three hours! I can't make a quilt that fast. I already used up the last of my scrap in last week's project.
Then I read the challenge post. It is about conquering a fear. Seriously?! It is daring me to make a quilt in three hours. Very tricky, people. Can I make it?
Step aside, I have another emergency quilt to make. Anyone who complains about the lack of vacuuming can blame the Kim and the Project Quilting people.
To make it quickly, I raided the Spare Parts box. That is where I put my orphan blocks that are leftover from other quilt projects. Since my project last week used leftover from another project and I got away with it, I decided to push the rules even more. What are they going to do, fire me? It is the last project of the year.
I figured I could use these pieces and fill in with the leftovers from the Boundless quilt and the box of scraps I am currently cutting for my scrap quilt.
I decided to just use the pieces based on their size and not worry too much about anything else. If it fits, that is where it sits.
I even took a break to make a scrappy lunch - throwing whatever I could find in the kitchen together to get it done quickly.
Ta-da! And because of the deadline, there was no time to take a lot of in progress pictures.
I had to edit this post to show you how close I came to missing the deadline.
cute quirky....next time could you put the spines all the same way so i can read them all? LOL...
That little quilt is so cute! Yay for pushing yourself!
hahaha good job! I missed it. Just haven't felt like quilting/sewing this week. Wish my library had that many quilt books!
Wow, congratulations for thinking to check and making the quilt in time to submit; that's amazingly!
Comfort and Glory came up on a list of quilt history books. Your post re-reminds me. I will put in a request!
Yeah to you for getting that quilt done within the deadline!
