Quilt With Us

Another wedding...another shower...another quilt!

That's right...we received a 'save the date' and a shower invite this week.
The wedding is in October and the shower...well just 4 weeks away!
What's a quilter to do?
Without knowing the colors or decorating choices of the bride and groom you have to think neutral!
Sew...since I was off yesterday...it was a very busy and productive day!

7am...choose fabrics for the quilt...dig through stash and pulled a variety of neutrals from the lightest creams to the darkest beige...
7:10am...(they were all in one place)...decide on a pattern/layout...
7:30...great ideas pull through...start ironing and cutting...
9:05am...sixty five 2.5" strips are all cut...jump into the shower...
9:45am...head out to nail appt. and then have lunch with a friend...
2:15pm...run some errands and head back home...
3:30pm...time to start cutting and sewing those strips together...
8:00pm...stop for dinner and switch the laundry...
9:00pm...back to sewing...
11:30pm...husband's home...stop sewing...make coffee for the morning...wash up...head to the pillow!
Here's what I accomplished...

Now I know I only have one block together...and I need 9...but they are all stacked in units and ready to sew together!  I am confident that this quilt will be sewn together by the end of next week and ready to layer, quilt and bind!
The design...one that has been floating around in my head for about 2 years now...just and allover 2" squares with an assortment of neutral fabrics and a 6" border.
The finished size of this one will be 60X88.
Time to sew...have a great day!

I love the neutrals. It's surprising how fast you can make a quilt when your in the "git-er-done".  mode.

You are quilting speed demon!  I'm in awe.  Say...when you're done there, could you come over and get me motivated to get something done here?  :)  Maybe I just need someone to crack the whip!

Hey, thanks Pam.  I just have so much going on right now that this one needs to be a rush job!
