Yesterday I told you about a box of scraps and goodies that came in the mail from one of my blog readers. In the box were several pieces of fabric in reds, whites and blacks. Well I got thinking…
If you haven’t been over to Crazy Mom Quilts, then you haven’t heard about her quilt along. I had known about it but didn’t think I had time to join in. But then when the fabric came and the quilt along was announced it all came together in my mind and before I had time to tell myself I didn’t have time for this I was cutting out fabric and sewing.
I didn’t count my strips…I just started cutting. I figured I would cut more if I didn’t have enough. I was thinking I wanted mine a little bigger than hers. I started cutting Friday after lunch and started sewing like a mad woman.
By Saturday I have all the strip sets together and cut into units….that’s when I realized I had cut enough strips for TWO quilts!!
Sunday I sewed all the rows together and had TWO completed quilt tops. No joke or exaggeration..I think I had the two tops done from start to finish in 9 hours…backs and binding prepped too.
Both of mine are in a 10 x 12 setting making them 60″ x 72″.
It was a whirl wind…one I thoroughly enjoyed! Now today I am hoping to get to the quilting machine with the tops.
