One Week finish
These are the fabrics I picked out, along with solid white, to make a quilt for my son. He just bought his first house and he needs color! Typical man, he decorated in brown and beige. This will be a lap quilt for the living room.
I picked a simple pattern and figured it would be ready for binding in a week since it was a QAYG and minimal piecing. Wrong.
I posted last time that my mother has been dealing with a lung problem since last summer. I won't go into detail but suffice to say things have been hectic and my mom had surgery yesterday, Friday. So I have only been able to work on this quilt maybe 4 days out of 14.
Here is the beginning of the layout in process.
I had to leave for what I thought was a couple hours to go to the hospital in the middle of the layout process and it ended up being an eight hour trip. When I got home I was tired so had to pick it all up so I could go to bed. I do not have a design wall and use my bed to lay out my quilts so up it came. A bad back and knees rules out the floor. We will see how today goes and hopefully tomorrow the quilt will be ready for binding.
We will see. ;)
What are you working on this Saturday afternoon?
