My brother's quilt has been languishing in the sewing room. I sort of lost interest in it and was also a little daunted by all the points coming together in the seams of the blocks. Anyway, I didn't make any more blocks after I finished the first two. I kept walking past the piles of flying geese and rectangles waiting to be sewn into 1/4 blocks and tried to ignore them so maybe the quilt fairies would come finish them for me.
Well, I received the nicest comment from Allie and she mentioned that she really liked the quilt I was making for my brother. That was all the motivation I needed to get cracking. My poor brother is freezing out in TX and I know he could really use this quilt. So I put my nose to the grindstone and got sewing. I finished all the blocks and got them sewn into rows.
Now I will say these fabrics ravel like crazy - I hate working with fabrics that do that. Even though I like the look of homespuns, you'll never see me make a quilt with them. All the threads sticking out and pulling through make me crazy (and some days it's a short trip to crazy).
In any case, once I sew the rows together, I will need to add 4 borders to finish the quilt off. I'm hoping I will be able to send it out to TX for him to use next winter.
A big thank you to Allie for giving me the motivation I needed to get this quilt going :)
