Hi everyone! It's been while since I've posted. Life always seems to throw something at me.
I've been busy quilting for customers and when I'm not doing that we have been working in the yard. The weather has been so crazy, it was cool for so long and then summer can in at full force and it's HOT!
DH and I are going to a wedding this afternoon, one of the guys he works with. I have known about this wedding since December, and had plenty of time to prepare but for some reason I never work they way. I always wait until the last minute so why should this time be any different? So, I literally started this quilt Tuesday. I had the fabric cut (it was a kit I was shorted on) just a bunch of 2" strips. I found the free pattern online which called for 2.5" strips but knew it would work, just make a smaller quilt. I really wasn't fond of how it was turning out so it wasn't hard for me to think of letting it go. Butttt, while I was quilting it, it got prettier and prettier. I just finished the binding this morning and then put the bow on, I cut up their invitation (I hope they don't get offended) to make the gift tag. And now, I'm having a really hard time letting it go. I always have a hard time giving a quilt to someone I don't know that well because I'm always afraid it will end up in a garage sale, or one of Pam's lucky finds for $2.00. So hopefully they will love it and use it until it falls apart. I just keep repeating, just let it go....
