Good Morning Quilt----
--you look so much better in the early morning light.
And when I photograph you in the bright Bermuda sunshine you really come to life!
And to think I almost gave up on you because I thought you were too blah....I now believe my misguided judgments were based on two factors--laying you against my brown living room rug and working in dim light into the late hours of the night.
Now I see you for what you are....a beautiful quilt top that will brighten someone's days.
I am linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday post. I made this top in one week (a new record while homeschooling :)) working from the hours of 8pm (bedtime for the kids) until 11pm (bedtime for me). I have now proven to myself that homeschooling, quilting, and sleeping can happily co-exist in my life. This is huge.
I used two layer cakes of Hulabaloo by Moda which made things go a little faster--and once again I used Jennifer's fantastic HST method to make the pin wheels. Each 4 pinwheel section measures 24"--so, with the 1 inch sashing the quilt top measures 76" X 76". I originally wanted to make it a twin size by having one more row of the 4 pinwheel sections but I ran out of blocks--boo!
I have promised myself that I will not be purchasing anymore fabric until I run out or until I die-whichever comes first---so I guess it will stay a nice square quilt.
Hope you were able to find balance in your week too!
And remember, I am still collecting HST's for Haiti and Honduras--the more the merrier!
