Still chuggin' along...

Back in 2000, when I started quilting, I didn't realize how long it would take me to finish a quilt. It doesn't seem like it should take so long, does it? I guess it makes them worth waiting for, hmmm? I've read that we shouldn't rush through making quilts and just enjoy the process. Man, I must really be enjoying myself cuz I've got a lot of them half way done!!!! LOL

I got all my stitch in the ditch done on this UFO. I wanted a little something in the border and found a swirly stencil in my collection. It looked a little like an ocean wave but I thought the curve would add a little something to the straight lines on these blocks. Got it all transferred last night but I had a houseful so that's as far as I got.

Working on this quilt makes me happy. I guess it's the bright yellow against the white. And I love the secondary design you get with the kaleidoscope blocks. I hope to get it finished by the weekend. I've got a few things going the next few nights so I don't think I'll get too much quilting done and 'have' to be at work during the day. Guess I should be thankful I have a job, right?

Can't wait to see it all finished Liz! Maybe it'll encourage me to finish my own bread n butter blocks!
