When I woke up yesterday morning, I challenged myself to complete a quilt in a day! Could I really do it? There was only one way to find out! I pulled out some pre-cut vintage charm squares and a leftover piece of Kona snow and got going! This little quilt came together pretty easily - no major snags except for a few tension issues with my free-motion and a mis-cut with the binding - oops! Measure twice - cut once! Anyway, I finished hand-stitching the binding at about 9:45 last night. I tossed it in the washer and dryer this afternoon.
It's a little on the small side (30" x 36"), but I think it's cute!
I have to give partial credit to Kaffe Fassett for this one. I attended a talk he gave at UBC on Friday night. When an audience member asked how he was able to accomplish so much, he replied simply, "The 'F' word," which he went on to explain, stands for FOCUS (which is what I intend to do)! Anyway, here is a picture of it...
I should also mention, I got three loads of laundry done, dusted, vacuumed, ate lunch (standing over the sink), changed the sheets, played with the cats, yacked on the phone, went out for dinner, and made my lunch for the next day! Not bad (considering I slept in until 7:30)!
