Because my blue stash is out of control, I decided to make a scrappy blue quilt. After finding the pattern that was just perfect for a quick little quilt, I ran to the fabric store to buy four yards of Kona (have no idea what the color is) to go with my scraps. And then I started cutting and cutting and cutting strips of medium blues. (I can't follow directions, so I just start cutting and stop when I'm out. Consequently, I never know what sizes my quilts will be.)
So guess what I've been doing lately? I've been sewing these blocks for almost a month (not exclusively, mind you). And I'm so tired of blue. Tonight, though, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. My calculations were almost accurate. I started to celebrate as I squared up the last of my needed 150 blocks. and realized I only had 145. I was too defeated to sew the remaining five tonight.
