Anyway, for New Years I got myself the new Quilter's Planner and I organized my year!
Off the top of my head I counted 16 UFOs (at least have fabric bought for it). So my goal is to make a dent in the list before starting anything new.
I love the way she organized this page!
Thing 1's bed is a full size . . . The mattress is 53"x72". The pattern makes a quilt that's 68"x72". All I should need to add are borders on top and bottom to make it fit the bed, right?
I stressed myself out a ridiculous amount on this quilt. For some unknown reason, I did a TON of calculations at the beginning to make the quilt 96"x107".
Why? The only thing I can think is that I was pregnant at the time. I blame pregnancy brain!!!!! All I really needed were some borders on top & bottom.
So I've been freaking out thinking I had to make 14 blocks instead of 7. Hee hee hee!
So, as of today I have 1 more block to piece (instead of 8). And each one takes me an hour and a half, so that saves me 10 hours of piecing!! Hurray!!!
I have 1 block to fix (too bad I can't blame pregnancy brain for this one).
There are several things wrong, but I'm just fixing the VERY visible one!
So here's to a new year, and to crazy math mistakes from 2 years ago that save you time!
Happy New Year!
