Do you ever get that way with your quilts or projects? This particular quilt is a "sampler" quilt, which means that each block is different, so it is difficult to do much chain piecing on it. Each block has to be done individually and there has to be a lot of thought that goes into the fabrics as there is no pattern telling me WHAT fabrics to use where, etc. PLUS, most of these blocks are ones that I had to find on the internet to do. It started out as a Craftsy Block of the Month, but after the first several months, I found I didn't like some of the chosen blocks. Thus, I had to find my own to do instead.
Anyway...back to Saturday. I posted this picture on Facebook and declared that it was time I made the last 3 blocks for this quilt...
Now...just in case you are a little OCD like my daughter (and I)...this is NOT the layout for the quilt. I just threw the quilt blocks up on the design wall to see what all I had and to assess the colors, etc., so I would know what I needed to still add.
Then I went to work making the last 3 blocks and I am happy to announce that as of now, all 25 blocks are D-O-N-E for this quilt!!!
NOW can I get a HALLELUJAH??? ;)
Here are the last 3 blocks...
Instead of suffering through the choosing and deciding that is needed to make more blocks to make this quilt queen-sized, I have decided to do 3" sashings, possibly with cornerstones to break up all that sashing. Between the 3" sashings and the borders, it will end up the size I want.
Hey...it's not "laziness", it's a "design decision".
Okay...it's laziness. What can I say?
Now...to decide what fabric to use to make the sashing...
