I’m so excited because today’s WiP Wednesday post is partially a Work Done post! While it’s not quilted, the Herringbone quilt top is done and that counts in my book. Amen? Amen.
I made the Sew Can She deadline (for the Herringbone block challenge) last night 30 minutes before the cut-off for the competition. I like to to live on the edge, people. There were so many great entries for this challenge, and I certainly don’t expect to win, but I did win. I have a quilt. One of those “everybody is a winner” moments. Those never really exist, but they do in the quilting world!
The Herringbone Quilt: By the Numbers
- 30 blocks
- 5 ft x 6 ft (unquilted)
- 3 Jelly Rolls
- 420 Strips of Cuzco by Kate Spain fabric
- 11 Days
- 14 x too many repeats of the Indigo Girls’ CD
- 3 nights of dirty dishes on the counter
Without further ado, the Herringbone quilt top is done!
Now I have quite a few bags of scrappy triangles to sew together for the back of this quilt from all of the extra cuts offs of each block…
I got all sappy on Instagram last night finishing this quilt …
Yep, I took a photo of the last seam. Yes, I did do that…
So, what next? Why my original first quilt, of course! Now that the Herringbone quilt is done, the Love Lives Here quilt is back up on the design wall.
Only 9 more blocks to go…
And, of course, I’ve started another project. The Sister’s Ten Modern Block of the Month sew-along. Supposedly I should have two blocks done by the end of January. I’m thinking February 1st is just fine!
