The week before last I took at class at my LQS. We were going to make a Christmas Pickle quilt.
I was so excited! So excited that I started making my pinwheels before class.
Now the quilt called for 120 finished pinwheels and I finished about 30 from my scraps and then went to the LQS for more fabric. That's when I found out that we were doing the pinwheels in class. So I stopped making them and waited for the class. Which was fine because I thought I'd have to make 30 a day to catch up.
When the class started I was ready! I was excited and I loved the quilt. It seemed like an easy and fun quilt to make.
In the first class we made pinwheels and ended the class with the arches.
We were given homework to complete before the next class. That's when my week didn't go as planned.
At our second class we made the paperpieced teeth or rays, added the arcs and pinwheels, then hung our completed blocks on the wall. Pretty!
She was such a distraction! Several times I told her that I'd trade projects with her. I even tried to talk her into tiny ones to place on the center.
Her fabrics were making mine look so boring I couldn't consintrait. I feel out of love with the pickle quilt and suffered from sever ADHD.
Maybe if I had finished my homework this quilt would have had a chance. Maybe
This took me all day to make. A six hour day and this is all I have to show for it. A baby pickle quilt. Well it will be baby quilt sized after I add a border or two, I just need to find the time! This week is starting off like last week!
Wishing for sewing time!
