My Math teacher friend would be so disappointed!
My design wall is too small for this quilt so I only put half of it up on the wall before starting to sew. Then as I added each additional row I was so excited because the design was all coming together. HOWEVER....I have 3 rows to go and not enough red blocks. Now I know that I counted and planned and stacked into piles all those squares knowing that there were plenty to make the design I had decided on. This is why my math teacher friend would be so disappointed! Somehow I have plenty of the cream blocks but I'm short about 35 red blocks. How does that happen? So now I get to make more blocks before I can finish this quilt top. * * * * * * * * I have sewn on the bindings of 2 quilts and I'm ready to handstitch them down. I know plenty of you machine stitch your bindings down....and if I could master that process....I probably would too. But I do find it relaxing to sit with a nice warm quilt over my lap (since Utah Springs are snowy, cold and sunny all at the same time) and finish the quilt by hand. * * * * * * * * Happy Quilting!
