I'm just going to say, that right from the start I doubted myself with this project. I was astounded that within only a mere few moments one afternoon I had cut up all the required triangles....all one hundred and sixty of them...to make the top of this quilt.
I was then even more surprised when the kids had so much fun helping me work out a bit of a random pattern and watched with eager eyes and I pinned it all together. Even more surprising was the speed at which I all one hundred and sixty triangles were sewn together, to make eighty delightful squares, which then turned into eight equally delightful rows. Amazing I tell you.
So amazing that the next day I high-tailed it to my favourite fabric shop ever (GJ's discount Fabrics) and splashed out in celebration with this gorgeous backing fabric and the splurge of all splurges, some ready made binding! Ok not so much a splurge but a definite time saver.
A project that for sure I would have estimated would take me years, only took a week....A WEEK! seriously, I didn't even pick up another craft in between. This for me, is a first!
At the moment it sits on the end of my bed....but no doubt I will drag it to the lounge when the cooler weather comes around.
And make sure you get around this creative hub and marvel at all the wonder that you will find.
Have you surprised yourself with a crafty project??
Is it a sign I am gaining crafty maturity do you think? By sticking at one project at a time before leaping to the next??
