Still working....

I took some time over the weekend to sew.  I'm still working on my Trip Around the World, but I'm half-way there. I'm making a king-size quilt - don't ask me why because I said I would never make another one, especially a "Trip."

 At least I won't be quilting it myself, but still....look at all the sewing/piecing required for a king-sized quilt.

I know....I'm nuts!!  Happy Monday all!

I love the quilt but I don't think I could handle all the sewing! I would need a queen. I love your colors to!!

It's like having a baby - you forget how painful it is because the result is so worth it!

PS - Did you ever get in any of the new Free Spirit solids? (I'm being lazy this morning and not checking the shop LOL)

It's gorgeous! And no, you're not nuts. Just realistic. I made a Bloomin Nine Patch many years ago and will NEVER do that again. I love the quilt but, like the TAW construction, there were a gazillion seams. Although the construction is not difficult, it's a challenge to keep the seams in the right direction so you avoid a "blob". Not for the faint of heart.

It's gorgeous Teri. Even with strip piecing, it's a ton of work. If you weren't nuts when you started, you probably will be when you finish! hahaha

It's gorgeous Terri! I agree with Crispy you're just a little ambitious.

Lisa said...

Ah...you're not nuts, I'd totally do the same thing! And so fun to see you're a quilter and a photographer, me too!
