Stops and starts

No running this week – ugh! It’s rained almost every day and I just couldn’t muster the motivation to get out in it…so I no sooner started up the C25K program and I’ve stopped. The weather forecast shows a chance of heavy rain every day for the next 10 days…wow 😦

I FINALLY finished up the commissioned tshirt quilt – can I get a Whoop Whoop! I used the left overs from the backing fabric for binding and got DH to hold it up outside for a good natural light photo. The client was extremely happy and didn’t seem phased at all that it took almost 5 months to complete :-/

I started on my May Scrap Attack project using the design on the left side below. I decided to dip into my bin of solids and I’m using a marbled tan for the center pieces and sashing. This will be a very bright and vibrant baby blanket when finished.

I pulled out my Accuquilt cutter and used the die that came with it which cuts 4.5″ squares…however I ignored the instructions to only cut 6 layers at a time and started folding larger pieces into the squares…ugh! double ugh!! It wasn’t until I started piecing these 9-patches that I noticed something was off. Some of the squares weren’t completely square because all those extra layers of fabric had shifted as I cranked them through the cutter – when will I ever learn not to take short cuts? smh! Needless to say I had to ‘square up’ all my squares, talk about doubling my work 😦

That’s about all for today…ttfn!
