Back in early June I sent out a Bucket List Challenge. I was planning to make my Hawaii Sunset 1845 quilt and I challenged you to make a quilt that you’re always been wanting to make.
I didn’t plan to drop everything and make the quilt…I just planned on starting and not letting in move into the UFO stack. So are you wondering how I’m doing?? At the time I didn’t have time to spend a day cutting so I just grabbed a stack of 2″ strips and started cutting to make the four patch blocks in the border. Here’s how far I got.
There are 42 four patches done. I was tidying up after getting a couple projects done so I stopped and cut out the rest of four patches. My goal for this month is to finish up the four patches. At this rate it is going to take me a long time to make this but that’s okay…someday I’ll have it done. I do know that when I go to Country Threads next week I am going to see if I can find a few more fabrics to add variety to what I have.
This mode of working on a project is kind of nice. No pressure to have it finished and no deadlines…that’s my favorite kind of sewing!!
So is anyone else making a Bucket List quilt?
