Have you ever said.......I'll just quickly finish this quilt. As far as I'm concerned that's just asking for trouble. As soon as those words, come out of my mouth, things start to go wrong. Last Thursday, that was my plan, to quickly finish joining the squares for my quilt, for Lily's Quilts QAL......well, I didn't have quite as much grey fabric as I thought I did....the minute I finish I'm sure the huge piece, of missing fabric, will mysteriously surface out of nowhere.
I also decided the quilt needed some borders to balance the sashing....more grey fabric was needed. What did I do....changed direction of course. Here you see me adding some borders, using the QAYG method (notice they are not grey).
As you can see, the squares are almost joined...but all that time, fooling around with more fabric and adding borders made quick work of my supposedly quick finish.
So close.....so tomorrow I plan to quickly add the last two borders and the binding....whoops I said it again.
When it's all finished I'll give you the goods, on how this quilt came about, on Lynne's blog at Lily's Quilts
