design wall...


I'm still working on the great nephew quilt. I kind of got side tracked (surprise surprise) and just got back to it today. One of the reasons it took so long to get back was every piece is from a template and I HATE that. If I ever make another quilt like this I will redo the pattern so I don't have to use the templates.
It is turning out cute I think. I really wanted to get the top in one piece by the time I went to bed tonight so I could sandwich it and start quilting on it tomorrow. I found out Ray and I are headed to Houston on Saturday so this would be the perfect time to leave it with my sister in law (Grandma). We will see if I get it done.
I also have to go to the grocery store and stock the pantry and fridge for Joseph since he is staying home. Fortunately Joseph is pretty easy to please most of the time.
More later,
Diane
Edit**** I got it into a whole top!!!! Whew I'm tired so off to bed I go, but I go with a smile. Thank you all for your encouraging words I needed them!

what a fun quilt! I understand the frustration with templates, but I'm glad to see you persevered, it looks SO worth it!

I love that quilt. I don't like templates either, so I'd have to figure out how to do it without. Love the colors too.
