Holy Cow - This is Like Labour Pains!!!

 Hi There!

I was lucky, today!

I decided to take the afternoon off and managed to get quite a bit of sewing done!

I remember the last time that I did a quilt "on-point", I think I pulled out every wicked word out of the dictionary and more!  I also remember swearing that I would NOT do another one....

It was boring.... which, could also be described as "painful".... and it took FOREVER to finish the quilt top.

Sound like a pregnancy to you?

And, like most pregnancies, with time,
you forget the pain and say, 
"Hmmmm.... maybe I'll have another one."


Here I am, working on this 9 patch quilt from Bonnie Hunter's book and while making the blocks themselves was time consuming -it was still fun.  Sewing the strips to finish the quilt top - boring and painful!!!

I've almost got half this king sized quilt top,
pieced together.

 There's lots and lots of scrappy little (cut) 
2 inch square blocks.

And, this is only HALF of the quilt top.

Hoping to put the other half together, tomorrow.

You have permission to 
bonk me over the head 
if I ever try another "on point" quilt, again!


Have a Fabulous Friday!!!
