Sunday 10:07 pm
This will be the last update of the night. I worked off and on all day and managed to get 15 rows of squares and 4 patches sewn to the background rectangles. I still have 8 to go. Tomorrow I will finish them up and sew the rows and then finish the top. I am glad I stuck with this, but man I am getting tired!
Sunday 6:30 pm
I am STILL working! It is starting to come along. I have 7 rows done now…only 16 more to go :) I have had so many interruptions today that I really should have just given up, but progress is progress. I have better hope for tomorrow!
Sunday 3:44 pm
4 rows sewn…just 19 more to go! Not going as fast as I had hoped. I keep getting interrupted. One of my son’s had a friend stay over last night, and the boy is still here…I had planned on him going home fairly early this afternoon, but his Mom is no where to be found. I guess she likes to turn her phone off…UGGGG (taking a deep breath and trying to find my happy place).
Here is a pic of the 1st 4 rows…
the other 19 are still in piles of pieces waiting to be sewn :)
Sunday 2:00 pm
I didn’t finish my project last night, in fact, it still looks just like it did in the last UPDATE @ 9:50 pm. I plan on working on it this afternoon, but I am getting a late start. No good excuse for why, I am just feeling lazy :) I will post pics as I progress, but to be honest, the couch and TV are calling my name and I am not sure how long I can ignore them!
I’m still partying…am I the only one not finished?? Not sure if this is going to be my last update for the night or not…depends on how much longer hubby works on his dragster. I want to cuddle on the couch and watch a movie before bed, but we’ll just have to see. I still need to go make a final visit to all the guests to see how their projects are coming along :)
I have all my pieces for my rows stacked and ready to be sewn. There are 23 rows, and I have 2 finished and pressed! I had to complete at least 2 rows to make myself feel like I was getting somewhere. Anyone else do that? Anyway, here are the pics.
I still need to go make a final visit to all the guests to see how their projects are coming along :) Then back to sewing!
I am still working and making progress. I have laid out all the pieces and now I am stacking them into piles to be sewn so I can make my rows…
I think this quilt has more pieces in it than all the quilts I have made put together! There are just so many. I think I am going to like it when it is done. I keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end :)
I have to take another break. It is time to pick the boys up from their Church party. I will work some more when I get back.
I’ve had a few more distractions since the last post, but the 4 patches are finished (finally)!
Now to assemble the top, but 1st I have to get the kids ready for their party and get them there!
I am swimming in 4 patches! I feel like I might never get finished sewing them together. As soon as they are done, this quilt top will start coming together fast…seems so far away :( Shhh don’t tell, but I needed a little pick me up so I ate a snicker…I gave up sugar and soda last week so that was a BIG NO NO…but a girl has gotta do what a girls gotta do!
These still need sewn…
These have been pressed…
So have these (test layout)
off to finish those 4 patches!
Not much progress since the last update as far as my quilt goes. My youngest son decided he wanted to go swimming so I took a pool break.
We had fun. I am now energized and refreshed and have everyone busy.
Hubby is outside working on his dragster.
Kyle and Parker are in their rooms playing games.
Hunter is at a friends house. And I am back to sewing those 4 patches!
I am getting a late start this morning (guess I stayed up way to late last night), but I am here and ready to go. I have my first row laid out and ready to sew. Before I get started I am going to go say HI to everyone :)
I managed to get my strips sewn together, seams pressed open, and units for the 4 patches cut.
I am ready to sew the quilt top tomorrow!
Friday 10:46 pm
It’s Friday night and the party doesn’t start until tomorrow, but I am going to be working on a pretty big project so I wanted to get things going and in order. I decided to cut out my pieces and start sewing my strips together so tomorrow I could work on assembling my Valentine quilt top.
So far I have all the little white rectangles cut, all 241 of them…
I have 132 corner squares cut
Right now I am trying to get 14 sets of strips sewn together so I can get the pieces cut from them. Here are the ones waiting to be sewn…
And here are the few I already have sewn together. They are waiting to be pressed.
I am going to finish sewing the strips together tonight and see how I feel. I may have to cut those pieces tomorrow.
