October Quiltathon – Day 1

Working full-time puts a cramp in my quilting time – especially if I’m easily distracted as I am on this quilt.  Last night while watching Quilt Cam, I cut and pieced the sashing running the width of the quilt, pieced the corner stones and trimmed the rest of the blocks.  Once Quilt Cam was over,  I walked out of my sewing room and found a book to read.

So, today, since it’s Day 1 of the October Quiltathon that Judy is hosting, I sat down after work and started with the intention of getting the quilt top finished — or at least two rows put together.

Instead, I got two blocks out-of-order – and I had them pinned with # pins! So, when DH suggested we make a run to the hardware store, I shut the machines down and grabbed my purse.

I guess now I will have some quality time with my seam ripper and try again tomorrow night.


After ripping out the wrong seams, sewing them together wrong again (but differently) and ripping out again. I finally got that last column put together.  So, I attempted the long sashing.  I think it’s right.
