(zach and i were reading treasure island when i finally finished the quilt. a fun coincidence that the book cover matched the quilt)
awhile back i shared this photo with you on a wordless wednesday. now i'll share the words : )
i collected the pirate fabric over several months for a quilt for my son. then the fabric sat for months. then i made the blocks which then sat for several months. after i finally made the quilt top, it sat for several months (see a pattern here?). then i basted it and it sat for several months. then i quilted it and it sat for several months. then i said "the heck with it!" and machine bound it lickety split.
living in florida, there is just no rush to finish a quilt for summer.
and now that zach's is done, I need to repair marguerite's quilt. gonzo got a hold of it and put a few holes in it. Let's just say I was ready to ship gonzo off to the south pole.
after announcing yesterday that i was challenging myself to blog everyday until the end of october, several friends took up the challenge for themselves too. fun!
