So, last week I started planning a new quilt. I even ordered fabric for it, but that deserves a post of its own. Crazy, I know, considering all the quilt tops I have in progress or waiting around to be quilted. Yes, I know I'm a bit ill. To satisfy these new quilty thoughts I pulled out the last quilt top I was working on - the red zig-zaggy chevron top. I never finished it because I ran out of the fabric I was using as the border. I bought more fabric long ago, but never touched it. All weekend that quilt top sat there on the chair, taunting me.
Like most weekends, my days were filled with housework, things to do, and laundry. There was little time for quilting. I did manage to tackle some major dust bunnies, but only because I rearranged my bedroom and had no other choice. Man, the stuff that accumulates under the bed is gross!
Finally on Sunday night after the kids were in bed, as I was settling in to watch Mad Men, I decided that it was time. I finished that quilt top. All I had to do was add the border on 3 sides. Yep, 3 stinking seams. It's silly that I put it off for so long. Since that took so little time, I went ahead and pieced the backing. Now my quilt is all ready to go - and I'm up wayyyy too late, but I had to stay up late anyway to finish the school uniform laundry (so what if I got a little side tracked and forgot about it while I was sewing). If all goes well and I manage my time, I just may have a finished quilt by the end of the week - just in time for that new fabric to have arrived at my door.
