I've joined a small group on my quilting forum called "This and That". We choose two projects that will take us more than 8 hours to complete and give them the name This or That. I picked my Odds and Sods quilt and the new baby quilt. We have to keep track of the time we spend on each one. Day one for me was a looser. It took me 1 1/2 hours to press fabric, cut and then sew 8 blocks.
The next day I sat and did some more. It was still a "this" day.
I kept chugging along and got more accomplished but boy oh boy, it does take time.
Well, I'm now up to 5 hours, and I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. I don't have any more blocks to make. I have extra now!!!!! The plan was for a 60" x 60" quilt top. However, with the extra rows why not just make it longer. So now it is going to be 72" x 60".........72 being the length.
Karl has claimed this quilt. He wants it for a summer quilt for the trailer. Robin is going to machine quilt it for me next month, maybe this month so it will be ready in plenty of time.
After 6 1/4 hours I have the top put together.
Now to make a backing. I'm using that fun fabric and putting a strip down the middle just like the blocks. I don't have any choice really. I don't have enough fabric for the width.
