Monday I got an email asking if I could complete a custom queen quilt by 5pm today. The quilt wouldn't be finished until Tuesday afternoon so I couldn't start it until Wednesday. And just to add a bit more stress, it's for the cover of a book. But it's all good, I could do it right?
Wednesday night I went home in tears; 6 hours into the quilt and I finished ONE row. What was I thinking? This wasn't going to get done by Friday unless I spent every single waking moment quilting.
Thursday was madness; I had 6 people in and out of the studio. I ended up going back for 3 hours last night hoping that working that late, no one would call or stop in. I could get this done!
This morning, I had the last row to quilt. Then the border. Then the quilt needed taken off, turned and the sides quilted. And I was losing an hour of my day to lunch supervision at the elementary school.
And guess what? I FINISHED. 3 hours early in fact. Even after it took me 45 minutes to sink all the threads. See all this thread? That's from one row of quilting; I should have taken a picture of the garbage can lol.
I love love LOVE how this turned out. Two different block inserts, sashing inserts and the border.
Now I have the matching pillow and lap quilt to finish next week.
