One Thing, One Week Challenge :: 3 Success!
Woo hoo! Now I don't want to show too much, but...
My Pinwheel Party quilt along is quilted! And I've even managed to finish more than half of the edges! Because of the prairie points, I had to leave at least an inch unquilted all along the sides in order to allow me to turn them to the back and finish the edges. So once the edge finish is done, I'll have to go back and quilt all those unquilted edges (because I think it would look a little weird if I didn't). Hopefully, I can get the remaining edges finished tonight or tomorrow. Then that little bit of quilting should go pretty quickly. So close!
I think I can pretty honestly say that if it weren't for the motivation this challenge provided, this quilt would still be sitting in a basted state. But, knowing I had the challenge "deadline" really pushed me to get it done over the weekend. (Apparently, just knowing that the baby it is for is now 3 months old wasn't motivation enough.) Once again, many thanks to Amy for throwing down the gauntlet and getting me going!
