Hoo boy, guys.
I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew…
This quilt is a beast.
I started simply enough, with a fairly simple (or so I thought) quilt square. It’s just triangles and squares, in only 3 colors (dark blue, light blue, and white).
But then, as I tend to do, I started elaborating. First I planned out the entire quilt so that I will have to make 12 blocks (which increases work by a ton). Then I decided that instead of just picking one dark blue fabric and one light blue fabric, I’d pick 4 of each, and mix them up.
But still, while I was just cutting out the pieces, and sewing the first seams, I thought I was doing OK. I still was enjoying myself. Sure, there was a lot of cutting and pinning and sewing, but it wasn’t bad.
Then I got to the ironing.
I forgot about the ironing.
So much ironing. (I don’t like ironing.)What was I thinking?
Do you have the same problem with biting off more than you can chew?
