I did not.
However it intrigued me and wouldn't go away and sat like a worm burrowing in my brain until one fine day I decided I wanted to do one!
But then the DARK SIDE over took me and told me I must do this quilt by hand TOTALLY. (I drew the line at weaving the fabric though it was about the same time my husband found me a loom.)
But for what ever reason, my primordial brain insisted this quilt deserved better than the average treatment. No long arm. Well If I'm going to go that far how about hand sewn! (It's about here I began to question my sanity)
I work part time as a supply teacher and usually have about 1 1/2 hours do a little hand work each day I was teaching. And to date that his been the ONLY time I have worked on this quilt. All the little pieces fit in a baggie in my bag. Sometimes a block was finished in a day, other times several weeks went by between my working on it. But I don't work every day. And life gets in the way.
But if I'm going to do this, that's got to change.
IF I do ONE block every day, I'll have it ready to assemble next Christmas.
But that schedule would cut seriously into the creative time for my art quilts.....and the hours I spend on the long arm. This is not a light decision, but It has to be made soon.
And then, QUILTING it by HAND. I've never done any quilting by hand. How long does that take?
Hence my question AM I CRAZY?
Just a few pictures of what I HAVE done. Some are stitched together and others are appliqued. No sign of the quilt police in my house.
I can be reached here if anyone thinks I need a frontal lobotomy.
