evilest quilt known to mankind
no seriously lol!
i started my thangles quilt in January 07. each month cost $2 and you make 1 block(commonly known as $1/month quilts in the US) i had the great idea of doing two of each month so i could make the quilt big enough to fit on our king-sized bed.
things were going great until July when i stopped doing the blocks every month and this past January i realized if i wanted to do THIS years thangles, i needed to finish last years!
so i finished off the blocks and headed down to Hamels to buy fabric for my sashings and borders. that's when i realized that i needed MORE blocks. so i did 6 more. than mom and i laid the quilt out and figured it was still not big enough so i did another 6 blocks. all in all, i've done 36 blocks, 22 of them in the last month. i am sick to death of this quilt lol!
on the bright side, the blocks are FINISHED! now to start the fun of assembling the quilt and making sure i don't have the same block to close to a twin of it.
but it will be put on the backburner(again) for a few days. Jim's birthday is coming up and i have to finish his gift
ack-sorry for the blurry pictures!
