Sad but true…when I was cleaning my sewing room a couple weeks ago I found a something that I was suppose to have finished and didn’t. We had a wedding on Hubby’s side of the family this summer that we couldn’t get to because Hubby had to work. Having an alfalfa hay crop can reek havoc on many a farmer’s summer plans…drying and crop readiness depends so much on the weather and we all know how dependable the weather is…NOT!
Anyway, I had the intention of making a quilt for the couple. I had a decent start on it but then when I realized we wouldn’t be able to make it to the wedding I just set it aside…and then something got put on top of it and the rest…well it’s history. Not good history either. Anyway I now have a quilt that is 4 month late…that is if I can quickly get it finished. If not, it will be five months late. I am told that up to year late is still within the confines of being acceptable. It’s still embarrassing.
Luckily I do have an okay start on it. Half of the blocks are completely finished and the others are almost finished.
The pattern is really easy and is from our book, Country Girl Modern. I’ve already made the quilt twice so once more shouldn’t be a problem. The quilt is fast too so I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping I can get it out of here in a week or two.
I already have a back prepped so once it’s a top it should be smooth sailing-but I’ve thought that before!!
I’m also working on my UFO. Check by on Wednesday to see my progress on that.
