We just aren't going to mention the fact the New Moon was five days ago and I am late again, okay? My ORTs are still being collected in this huge, ugly Ziploc storage bag. There were lots of new triangles added...I miscounted how many setting blocks I needed, wait, let's not mention that either. The large tangle of thread is the bits from bobbin ends, no mentioning of the two times I sewed with no bobbin thread or the one time with no needle thread!
The bag is sitting inside my pretty wooden leaf bowl, if that makes any difference! The little 2 inch squares are my leader-ender blocks. Those blocks will one day be their own quilt, for now they just start and end my chain-piecing.
Some of you have have asked where my cross stitch has gone. I promise, it's just on hiatus while I get some of this quilting bug cured. I started learning to quilt because I wanted a made-by-me quilt for my own bed.
You wouldn't believe how much fabric and how many rows it takes to cover a king-sized bed!
I have all the rows completed. I think. Unless I have miscounted. I could have miscounted! I'm no great shakes at math and quilting takes so much math!
I've started sewing all the rows together. It won't take long now! This will have to be sent off to be quilted as there is no way I can quilt it myself on my little machine. It's HUGE! I am getting excited about finishing this project.
