Well it is amazing how much one can get accomplished if one doesn't spend hours sitting glassy eyed in front of their laptop on Pinterest. Oh my goodness, have you stumbled into this abyss? I love it and I loathe it. I can spend forever pinning pretty pictures to my boards and telling myself how creative I'm being - LOL! After a marathon session on Friday evening/Saturday morning I gave myself an ultimatum to stay off for the weekend and to my disbelief I actually followed my own orders and this is what I have to show for it....my Dazzling Debbies quilt - the entire center portion is sewn together.
The border on the outside still needs to be rearranged a bit before I sew it together. As for how many pieces I need, well, I'm not short anymore, in fact now I have extras. I give up on the math, I just can't make it come out even. However, the extras will let me pick and chose a bit on the border.
Here are some shots of the central section of the quilt. Lots of novelties which make me smile.
I have had a lot of fun with this quilt and the fabrics... and I felt even more creative than if I had pinned another 100 pictures to my boards. Do you know that Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet has over 12,000 pins? I don't know how she did it but oh there are some very pretty things to see on her boards. On one hand I want tell you to go and check out my boards but then I'd feel guilty about all the time you are going to spend on Pinterest. So I'm not going to instruct you to go or not to go, that is your choice, but honestly, this is an even bigger time suck than Ravelry and I wouldn't have believed that if I hadn't lost 24 hours (or more) of my life on this site already. Ok, you've been warned!
