WiP Wednesday – 38
If you haven’t figured out by now, I’m one of those people who is incapable of doing things in a small way. I like it big, loud, and proud! So when I set about making this No Value Does Not Mean Free quilt, I thought a nice lap quilt would do. Then I started buying fabrics (the Molli Sparkles inducted should know where this is going by now).
Fabrics bought, I proceeded to cut up all of the strips needed for this Trip Around the World. Except, I had some extra fabric. So I cut more strips, and some more strips. Then I sewed them together. And those extra ones together. And the ones I found hiding under the table together. I came up for air and discovered I have thirty-eight blocks in the making, with plenty of fabric still left in that pile of white.
That’s already at least 72″x72″. I guess subconsciously, my psyche knew that if it couldn’t make it loud with colour, it wasn’t gonna let it be small! I spent most of the weekend sewing until my Juki starting smoking (metaphor!) and I ran out of white Aurifil. Then I frantically searched for other white thread. “Hmm. Where did I … um … No. This can’t be? How? No. No. … nooooo!” I didn’t have any other white thread. Uh oh.
And that’s where I still am. Lots of blocks in progress (destination unknown) and no thread. I’m a rock star like that. Your turn: You ever made a dicky move like this?
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!
Searching for something not white to work on this week.
