Here it is 2:22am and I'm wide awake! UGH! Why do I do this? I have to get Richard up at 5:30am and then I have a doctor's appointment at 9:45am so it will be a very long day....
I went to bed around 9:30pm and read a few chapters in a book that I have been reading. I wasn't the least bit sleepy and all that I could hear was Smokey laying on the rug beside the bed snoring away. Love his heart, he is old and snores sooooo loud. :) I got up so that I didn't wake Richard up and went upstairs to the sweat shop.
I was so sick of NOT finishing anything. I just jump from project to project due to lack of interest and never end up finishing anything. So since I knew it was going to be a long night, I pulled out my "4-patch flip" blocks that I pieced back in October 2011. When I pieced the blocks I had planned on making two lap quilts, but since I had 60 blocks pieced I figured I would piece 3 more and make 1 larger quilt. I did a 7x9 setting and added a 6 inch border. The photo are not that good but hey it's after 2am. Since Andrew is not here tonight, I put it on his bed so that I could snap a few photos. I will try to get a better photo of it later....maybe. I know it is not completely finished and needs to be quilted but that will come later.
Andrew's bed is a queen so I'm guessing this would be a good full size quilt. It does hang over the edge but not far enough for a queen.
You can see a little bit of the brown border. Nothing special just a plain border. I'm sure when I look at this quilt later, I will wish that I had change some block placements. I was just sewing them together...
This is the clock as I was turning my machine off.... UGH!
Oh and while I was sewing the blocks together I got a few more bow ties done too. 16 more to be exact! :) And those baskets on the design wall were done earlier today. That makes me 52 baskets now.
While I was up there I popped in a DVD, Rob Roy. I had not watched it for a while and it was actually the first thing that I saw. :)
I guess I had better try to wind down and go to bed, it's 2:37am now and I have to get up at 5:30am......
