Well, my two-sided quilt is completely pieced, and just needs to be finished up. It’s one of the biggest quilts I’ve made, and so I can imagine that it will take me awhile to get around to quilting and finishing it. The quilting alone would probably take a couple of days of steady work.
Here are some things I’ve learned about myself while making this quilt:
- I’m 99% more likely to finish a project if I’m making it for someone else.
- I can’t really sew in a straight line.
- I seem to think that measurements are more of a guideline than a rule.
- I greatly prefer putting together a quilt top than actually sandwiching the top and bottom and quilting.
- People who use acronyms in their directions or who assume I understand their terminology bug the crap out of me.
- No matter how much fabric you have, you seem to always need more. Something else.
- Your bobbin will run out of thread when you are on the longest seam possible.
Here’s the finished top and bottom. I’ll let you know when I start quilting. Don’t hold your breath, people… who knows when it will happen.
