As I was packing in the sewing room I came across the strips that I had left over from the Perkioman Daydreams quilts. If you remember my daughter requested this for her wedding quilt. I pulled out the box excited because I thought the bags looked pretty full.
This bag had strip #3’s.
This bag was even fuller with #5’s.
It looks like we better count these up before we sew too many or I’ll end with a HUGE stack like I have of 4-patches…remember?
Well after I picked up the strip sets I saw something underneath in the box…BOW TIES!! I forgot all about that I had made bow ties from Bonnie’s Bow Tie Challenge. I was excited to see them….Super excited. I wondered if I have enough for the quilt.
I started counting. Wow..I had over 100 — In fact I had 132!! Impressive right?? WRONG!
I went to the book More Adventures with Leaders and Enders and found that 132 is a drop in the bucket. I need 729 for the quilt!
Initially I was a little disappointed that I didn’t have very many…but then I thought silly girl! I didn’t even remember that I had any– so 132 is an awesome number! Better yet, as I dug deeper into the cupboard I found that I had cut out many more and they are ready to sew.
The next problem I have…I don’t know if I have more of this cheddar colored fabric. I am guessing that if I dig I’ll find more. I seem to remember buying a large amount of it. If not, I’ll just start digging into my cheddar scraps and make the backgrounds scrappy.
So it looks like I better package this all up together and add it to the UFO list. I am thinking that once I finish up my spool quilt that I’ll pull this one out and get working on it.
