Last night, in a Sudafed/Benadryl haze, I finished the quilt I had put in timeout. I had a lot of trouble making the sashing line up properly-in fact I decided not to add the additional strip of the grey geo print the pattern calls for-why make myself completely crazy? I made a ton of binding and then collapsed in bed. This morning I ran by Joann's to get batting and my goal tonight is to make the backing, cut it and the batting to size and pack it up for mailing to the quilter. Then I am free to sew anything I want!!! I am hoping to make pajamas for the boyos this weekend.
So Susie may have been onto something! This doesn't look bad at all. It currently measures 87 x 58 as it lies in pieces. When sewn together it will be a bit smaller. I may do a stop border to go next to the binding. So my goal now is to make all the blocks I will need-seven maybe?
It's a finished top. Well, I say finished. I'm going to have to shorten the top and bottom borders-I think they are too long to fit the batting! I bought a twin size batting on sale for this quilt. Still need to make the back and then I can send if off to Karen the Quilter.
