The other day, a bloggy friend left a comment expressing her surprise at the number of quilts I had on the go. I, in turn, was surprised by her surprise, assuring her that two quilts didn’t seem like an outlandish number to me… But she assured me back that the number of quilts I was working on was, in fact, three. And she was right. It was. IN fact. THREE. Namely, the baby shoo-fly, the hexie and the Craftsy BOM.
How utterly embarrassing. I mean I totally totally totally forgot about that Craftsy one. Suddenly, there I was with three quilts on the go, and I didn’t even KNOW it. Not to mention the fact that I was clearly denying a perfectly real quilt’s existence all over cyberspace. Like, really. How does this happen?
I suspect I may be losing it.
Anyway… so the embarrassment motivated me to get on top of this baby shoo-fly project lickety-split and get those quilty numbers down man! I don’t like having a ton of unfinished projects. Oh don’t get me wrong, I HAVE unfinished projects. I just don’t LIKE having them.
Happily, today I can report that I have one less unfinished project. Yip yip!
Okay so. What can I tell you about this quilt?… Um, this baby shoo-fly is a gift for my shiny new little niece. It is machine-pieced and hand-quilted by me in what I’m going to call a bull’s eye pattern. See on the back there?… The hand-quilting gives it a very crinkly texture which I kinda love. It has a cozy and warm polka-dot flannel back ideal for our teeth-chattering Canadian winters, and an orange polka-dot binding.
I’m checking this one off the list right now… Celebratioooon! Two remaining quilts to complete, and then my quilting horizons are wide open. Like, wide open.
