Yep, that pretty much sums up my long weekend. Thanks to Tropical Storm Lee, our 3 day weekend was a total wash-out. Rain, rain, and more rain. Truthfully, I didn't mind. All that rain is perfect for hibernating!
By Sunday I was ready to do something productive, so I pulled out Alex's quilt fabrics, which were gathered, oh, 2 or so years ago (I think). I don't remember what my original plan was, but I do know that I wanted lots of horizontal stripes. After cutting many many strips and assembling them into piles, I started sewing.
I ended up with 4 long sections of of stripes. After playing with the placement, I decided that I only needed 3 of those sections. This is by far the largest quilt I've ever made. As you can see, there are lots and lots of dots!
I used a solid gray stripe every so often in my sections, so I decided to border the quilt with that as well. By Monday morning I had a completed quilt top! I was feeling quite ambitious, so I took a trip to the fabric store for some backing fabric. Unfortunately, I left empty handed. That place was a madhouse with the Labor Day sales going on. All those people made me nervous. Hate that. Oh well, that nap I took instead of sewing a quilt back was probably a better use of my time :)
