Breaking my rule ... again!




I am breaking my rule about working on more than one quilt at a time AGAIN! YIKES! As October has arrived, I decided to get going on the two quilts I want to have made by Christmas. I plan to go right back to my orange and pink quilt as soon as they are done! I've made quite a bit of progress on it actually - I'm over half way done sewing together the top.

This weekend I pinked the edges of the fabric and washed them (I find pinking the edges helps them not to fray as much). And I ironed all the fabric during the 3 football games Matt and I watched yesterday (it took me that long because I did a lot of parenting and food making/eating during that time too!) I also got my blocks mostly cut last night! Today I've started sewing the blocks together. Here is my inspiration for the quilt. And this is the tutorial I'm using to make the blocks.

Oooh That's going to look cool! I love those funky blocks :) I SO wish I had the patience for quilting. This whole process of cutting and washing and ironing and sewing....I just want instant gratification LOL! I gotta give it to you quilting girls! :)

It is contagious to read of your projects. Makes me want to throw caution to the wind and hole myself in my bedroom to do nothing but craft!

I have all but abandoned that part of my life for a while, because I am what you would call an all or nothing kind of gal, and really, the kids need to eat once in a while. ;) Too bad I don't multitask as well as you do. The secret?
