Too many quilts - not enough time!
And of course, there is so much
A blog post on Stash Manicure (click here to read it) reminded me how much fun a Sudoku quilt is.
I dug around in my closet and found this Sudoku mini quilt I made 3 years ago and have always hang up in the fall. It's only 12" square...not a lap quilt like the ones shown on Stash Manicure, and each 9 patch block is 3" finished.
I used a Moda Sonnet charm pack and even used a few more charms as the backing of the quilt. You can see how I make my hanging sleeves and labels in this photo.
Then I decided to challenge myself with the quilting and machine quilted each little 1" square in a different design using a different colour of thread - click here to see the thread selection blog post.
The 1/2" sashing is quilted in teeny tiny little leaves, which are one of my favorite quilting designs, but were a challenge to make this small.
Do you see why projects sometimes take me so long to finish?!? I putz around enjoying every little detail of the quilting process!
And do you also see why I can't get off the computer?!?! Just reading that Stash Manicure blog entry caused me to re-visit my own Sudoku quilt, write this blog post and
Oh, and speaking of wasting quilting time, do you know that there are TWO blog hops coming up this week?!? The first is a Fall-o-ween Blog Hop which guides you to visit 10 quilt designer blogs, where each day there will be a new theme and a free project. You can read all about it on Sandy Gervais' blog - click here.
And also Pat Sloan is hosting a 14 stop blog hop to promote her new line of quilting rulers - click here to read about that one.
Too many blogs to visit - not enough time! But spending time doing cyberquilting does not get the quilts finished, so NOW...I will put away my new exciting projects from the Bonnie adventure last week, and get off this computer and get to work on finishing an old UFO!
