So waaaaaay back in June, when it started to get warm, I pulled the winter duvet off our bed. It had definitely seen better days. It was over 10 years old, discolored beyond even bleach's abilities and was clumping/losing feathers daily. I brought up the idea of throwing it out to my husband. "Will we buy a new one?", he asked. "Oh no!" I replied. "I will have a new quilt made for us long before it gets cold again!"
Guess what folks? The nights are starting to get cooler. There have been a few mornings when it's felt downright chilly in our house. And that promised quilt is nowhere near done.
Some of you may recall my restriction of one block per week on said quilt while I worked on more pressing deadlines. But this has now moved itself up the priority list. A lot. Instead of making one block at a time, I've switched to chain piecing. Much better, by the way. In the span of a week, I've gone from 3 finished blocks to 23 finished blocks, fitting in only 30-60 minutes a day.
I think I better get back to the sewing machine. 77 blocks left!
