would you believe that I put together a quilt in 15hrs? Or less... i'm just figuring here. But probably, I know some of you are out of control fast... my Mom can get a quilt done start to finish in 4 days, which of course is mind blowing/ danerously explosive... how fast is fast Peeps?
My sweet Mom got me a sweet action sewing machine from a garage sale, and it turns out it's one of the best machines Singer ever made AND it's in tip-top shape now.... well as part of my personal mission to be better at what I believe in, I needed to make a quilt. I started this project (by purchasing the fabric) back in July. I keep trying to make a LizzyDish quilt but this quilt was plaguing me. SO, since I believe in quilting, and I have a new sweet action machine, and a plague of fabric I made a quilt almost as fast as I could. I started, and I just didn't stop. 200 degrees that's why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit, i'm traveling at the speed of light...
There was even a party in my living room tonight where I was sewing, and it didn't throw me for a second. There were several guys I didn't know trying to make conversation with me, asking if I bought this in a kit, asking if I was in a sewing class or if I was a home-ec major, asking if they could sew a block...
I have a BFA in Printmaking
I did not buy this in a kit
my Mom is professional quilter
I am a fabric designer
I am busy on Thursday
would you excuse me, I need to iron this.
What was I supposed to do? I was on a mission.
I'll quilt it sometime this week. It's a nice quilt. I used the foreign currency pattern.
But the thing is, the only way I could get my own quilt with my own fabric underway was if this one was out of the way.
All of my quilty moms out there would be so proud of me, and my corners... yeah I used pins and everything, and they all match up.
have a great week everyone!
oh and go get some Lizzy Dish!
