At the end of the week---lots of projects done (well for some--I made a vow that my Stained Glass quilt WOULD be done--at least I have another week to work on it when they go home.),
lots of pool/beach/sun time and a couple of visits to a local quilt shop, Quilter's Cottage in Murrell's Inlet who was having a GREAT sale--50% off a lot of newer fabric. Caused this gal to jump off the no buying wagon a little bit. Well...to be fair I had store credit for doing some sewing for her, and I HAD to spend it, right? LOL
And this darn quilt has been a on-going (slow) project since 2002. I thought I would make a block each time I went their. Well, I only had 8 blocks done and I thought, at this rate it will never get done! I had too much invested in it, especially those fusible bias tapes--11 packages of them! I vowed that this summer would be the year I got this done. Not terribly hard to do, but VERY time consuming, especially the prep time. Then I chose to do it QAYG (Quilt As You GO) and had to make a few adjustments to accomodate that and had to be creative when my center block ended up 1/2" short because of the quilting. I spent the week after my quilt group left (one did stay with me--so it was nice to have company while doing the tedious work) and I got it done!! AND as soon as hubby arrived with the kids, I had him hang it. Wow--what a HUGE UFO done!
