October Quiltathon – Day 1 October 4, 2012

Working full-time puts a cramp in my quilting time – especially if I’m easily distracted as I am on this quilt.  Last night while watching Quilt Cam, I cut and pieced the sashing running the width of the quilt, pieced the corner stones and trimmed the rest of the blocks.  Once Quilt Cam was over,  I walked out of my sewing room and found a book to read.

So, today, since it’s Day 1 of the October Quiltathon that Judy is hosting, I sat down after work and started with the intention of getting the quilt top finished — or at least two rows put together.

Instead, I got two blocks out-of-order – and I had them pinned with # pins! So, when DH suggested we make a run to the hardware store, I shut the machines down and grabbed my purse.

I guess now I will have some quality time with my seam ripper and try again tomorrow night.

Update:

After ripping out the wrong seams, sewing them together wrong again (but differently) and ripping out again. I finally got that last column put together.  So, I attempted the long sashing.  I think it’s right.
