I got a life… Ok not really.

So normally I am always thinking how awful it is that people don’t write in their blogs every day for me to read it. I guess you could say I find myself with quite a lot of spare time. Last night I was talking to my mom on the phone and she said “didn’t you read my blog?” and I was shocked. How could I have not be up to date? And then I realized I hadn’t read anyone’s blog in a long time (read: a week) and I thought, did I get a life? What is happening?

And then I realized that I have been working hard core on this quilt. It’s not really the same as having a life, but it does make you have less time to read blogs and be angry that no one has posted. Anyway. Here is a picture of what I’ve got going on thus far:

Wait. I just went to take a picture mid-blog and realized something quite disconcerting. My blanket width does not match up. After a bit of shouting Aaron convinced me that it had a lot of give so it would be ok. I may not have a career in quilting after all. Oh well. Ok really here are the pictures:

Progress so far. Note the not lined up edges. Whoops.

A closer up shot. Don’t study this for too long or you will find all the imperfections and go crazy and want to rip your quilt up. I think I lack patience.

Oh yeah, in the middle where it gets sewn together goes white windows. Just in case you were dying of curiosity.

I don’t really like these pictures, so maybe tomorrow I will take some new ones and replace them. Or just leave them and post a picture when it is done. Either way.

P.S. You might be wondering why I didn’t just build square by square and instead have strips. The answer: I decided it would look really cool to not quilt all the way through when putting in the windows, and maybe I could figure some cool design on the back, or ribbons, or something. And then I put on the first square of the next row and realized it was then impossible to not quilt through because blah blah blah you don’t care. Anyway, I almost destroyed my quilt in fury, but Aaron again pointed out to me that I could just make rows, sew them together, and stitch all the way through on the white windows. The man is a genius. Ok, so that was all too much information and I don’t have a life.

    Oh my little equadorian Martha Stewart! Look how crafty you are. I am very impressed and I don’t think you should worry about little things like your quilt being an even length. I think blankets that are even are totally over-rated! I miss you! can you come visit me today?

    I think you are doing a fab job.The quilt looks great. Did you teach yourself? And I totally know how you feel about people bloggin but I have totally been one of those suckers lately. When are you and Aaron coming back?
    And p.s. Ryan is totally behind schedule. I don’t really know anyone around here so maybe when you get back we can find home someone.

    yeah, i’m a sucker too. i get addicted to reading blogs too and then get disappointed when there aren’t any new posts. but i got a real job now and actually find myself busy doing work rather than reading my friends blogs every hour.

    about your quilt – super cute! i am really, really, really impressed! not that i thought you couldn’t do it but bc there is NO way i could do that myself. i don’t think i could even do a simple patch quilt. you rock!
