What I’m Working On

Well it’s 12 days to go.  12 days before I have to have the quilt finished and Kalissa walks down the aisle.  I am still feeling pretty confident.   I have the center blocks all done.  Yahoo!

I probably shouldn’t feel encouraged as I have a long way to go but if I can get a few blocks sewn each night for the next couple nights I’ll have the remaining border blocks done. The blocks are pretty far along already.  Once they are finished it’s assembly time…machine quilting time…and finally binding time.

Next weekend has a few things booked in already but there is hope that I can get some sewing time.  We have a wedding work day scheduled for Saturday so hopefully all the extra “stuff” can get finished.

I’m just going to keep plugging and plugging away.  Hopefully I’m make it in time.  If I don’t I know Kalissa and Craig will understand.  They have a crazy life happening right now too.  Kalissa decided to keep going to school and work towards her BSN.  At this point she doesn’t know how far she’ll get but she’s starting and that’s good news too.  With new classes starting today and her working nights, she’s a little frazzled.  I keep telling her we just need to get through the next two weeks and we’ll be fine.

Wish me much sewing time…I need it.

Today we’re hooking up with Patchwork Times.

  1. Wedding times can be stressful for everyone. May God grant you lots of sewing time.

    When my daughter married, she was in NM and I was undergoing chemo in OK. I had to postpone my last chemo session to be able to attend the wedding in NM. I was not well and would not have missed the wedding if all possible. She and I made money bags the week of the wedding. I had a seam I wasn’t happy with and she told me to leave it – it added character. I also made their ring bearer pillow. She made all the arrangements for everything. We were all just thrilled that I could be there. Her dad and I had divorced 6 years before. We walked her down the aisle – one on each side, sat on the front pew together, didn’t say a word to each other and didn’t see each other at the reception. Now we talk if necessary – it’s been 12 more years.

    I wanted to make her a quilt and she’s picky, picky, picky. I bought fabric in her wedding colors since she wouldn’t go shopping with me. Then she said she wanted a rag quilt – I wasn’t making a rag quilt out of quilt cotton – I think you need flannel. All the fabric is in a box somewhere at my house.

    You go, girl, and the quilt is beautiful. It will be appreciated and you are so right that the couple will understand if there is a glitch. Again, I pray that God grants you time, patience, and lots of matching seams.

  2. I love the colour of these gray blocks – I bet this is going to be a beautiful quilt when it’s finished :)
