I have a serious problem with bed quilts. I start with fabric I love for a person I love in a pattern I love...and by the end of it, I am SO- TOTALLY- OVER- IT. It's a curse. I just can't shake it. When I started making a twin size quilt for one of my twins out of my FAVORITE designer's fabric (Sandy Klop of American Jane for Moda), I thought the curse would finally be lifted.
A MONSTER QUILT!!!! I am so totally over working on this, but I am pushing through the pain. If only I could apply such dedication to exercising...I'd be rocking a six pack for sure. This thing started fraying (I guess the bias edges) and I knew I had to hurry up and sew it together before it was just a pile of unusable crap. I was thinking about straight line quilting, but I think I will do my loopy quilting since I'm worried about seams popping due to the fraying.
I have binding oozing over my little chifferobe. This thing is taking over my little sewing area. Did I mention this quilt ate up all the backing fabric I had bought for TWO QUILTS. I told you it was a monster!
Another reason I have to finish this thing up is because my husband, my 3 boys, and I are going to see Sir Topham Hatt and ride Thomas on the Texas State Railroad this weekend. It's 3 hours up there and 3 hours back and my husband has a twisted habit of making the car FUH-REEZING cold because he says it help him stay awake when driving. I'm on to his game and I am going to try to have this thing ready to bind in the car: productive and prepared...because that's just how I roll.
