The Catch - the Quilt had to be completed by December 2nd! ( and completed meant bound too! ugh)
I was in Limbo - Do I do my Color challenges as a log cabin? Do I start something else? What to do...... well..... I was indecisive for a while!
I remembered seeing a Log Cabin quilt in 30's Prints on Quilting is More Fun Than Housework - and I thought - I could do that, bust my stash of 30's, enter the challenge, and have a finished quilt at the end of the year....
So I grabbed my stash, and I started cutting 2 inch strips.... and I started sewing, and I realized that there was a LOT of stash in that bucket.... I persevered and On December 2nd I had a finished quilt , bound and all ready to hang at our Guild's show.....
Only one problem... I am not in love with it..... I am in like with it.... and it will probably grow on me, but I wonder.... usually my projects take a stall out phase.... this one couldn't.... so is that why I am kind of mad at it?
I couldn't get a great hanging photo, I had the longer lens on since I had just been at a basketball game.. So I came home and laid it on the floor. All that stuff you read about how hard it is to take quilt photos at night? Yep! They are right.... lighting is just rough.
I changed the design up a bit from the photos I saw.. I didn't want to copy exact - and I wanted it to be 72 x 90 at least. I did a LOT of feather quilting, and I practiced scale of feathers on it.
I am truly thinking that I am going to put it back on the machine. I ran out of quilting time, knowing that it had to be bound. But I think I would like to go fill the unquilted border spots with lines - lots of echoing lines....
And that.... is the Finish that was my Anonymous Finish for November. But it was actually finished on December 2nd at 3pm.... because I had to leave for a basketball game at 3:15, and get this to the guild meeting that night at 6:30 ....
Oh.... and look at this:
I still have scraps!!!! UGh!!! I forgot about the amount of scraps I was going to generate!!
And This is what is left of my 30's Stash.... I see at least 3 more quilts in there???? Do you????
