WIP Wed (West Coast Edition): Project Quilting

Yep, I have to admit that there are times where I must share others' questioning of my mental stability...  For some reason, this week's Project Quilting has driven me just a wee bit crazy!  The challenge is to create a quilt that uses white and one other color.  Simple, right?  Wrong...

I have a plan, but wanted to make it all from my scraps, and wanted to make a big bed sized quilt.  Blue is what I have the most of, so blue and white it is.... I forgot just how time-consuming scrap quilts can be though.  After 3-4 hours cutting only a fraction of the squares I need, I decided that this won't work by Sunday.  I still want to try to make something though, so I took the smaller <4 inch scraps and cut them into smaller squares, and spent most of today sewing and ironing them. 

Can you see why I'm questioning my sanity now? If nothing else, this project has taught me that I'm not cut out (pun totally intended) for miniature quilting!!! Stay tuned.  I'm also linking up with Lee's WIP Wed, even though most of my East Coast buddies are probably done with supper already...

  1. I'm the same way with my small stuff... sounds good, but that is the extent of the good part of little pieces!!!
