How do you handle a quilt deadline, or any deadline for that matter? Well, I usually set about a plan and am finished long before the looming deadline. Today, I have a quilt deadline. I need to have my little cowboy, grandson quilt completed and presented on October 8. I started the design process one month ago today. I have been drawing, making patterns, measuring, sewing, cutting, marking like a mad woman and finally have the quilt basted and ready to quilt. I usually take my time in this process, enjoying each segment. One month for the whole thing! For me this is a record! And one week I was without a sewing machine! Now, only 3 weeks left according to my self-imposed deadline and all I need to do is machine quilt it. I have never machine quilted before, so this might present the ultimate challenge. We shall see. Then on to bind it, wash it and wrap it!
And a name? ….
Our son and precious DDIL have decided on a name for our grandson! Can you guess what it is? Three guesses….
I just KNEW you'd be able to guess it! :) LUKE!
Not sure how I will quilt it. I must make it easy, since I have no idea what I am doing. I am thinking of outlining everything and then diagonal stitching around. I know, not very exciting, but I will just be so happy if it turns out! Think I’ll take a look at some other blogs for inspiration!
