Quilt that grows and grows

I’ve been working on my Sea Glass Quilt, and it is growing, and growing, and growing. I have never made a Queen size quilt without a pattern and so this has been interesting. I saw this quilt on Facebook and then decided that I knew how to make the Log Cabin and so I got my fabrics, decided on a size and went to town. I started with the longest piece and made that so it went from corner to corner of the bed and worked my way out. I have 1/2 the top finished and realized this thing is going to measure 115″ by 115″. A little big, but my thinking didn’t take into squaring it off so in making the triangle pieces hubby suggested we just cut off some of the pieces to make straight edges. Sounds good till he said just make sure you make it long enough. I hate it when he puts ideas into the brain and then walks away laughing. I came and looked at the drawing I made and then decided my original plan was what I would do. The old Fart love teasing. LOL

Hopefully today I will be getting this finished today and then can figure out how I will be quilting it. This is gonna be a day of listening to KC Chief’s Football game. And I will sew.

Now to change some bad habits and get my days organized. I like organization, sometimes chaotic organization but a good routine to get all I want to do done in a day or at least close to it. Lately it has been just sitting and getting nothing done. I don’t like that. Oh well enough gripping. It is a beautiful sunny 35 degrees today and I will enjoy it, maybe get outside some. Have a great day.
