But you know, quilting takes a long time!
At least for me it does. Here is my little "don't have to think about it" project... my take on Antique Bricks, a pattern I saw in a McCall's magazine. [I'm sorry to say that the pattern doesn't seem to be online anymore. You can email me if you are really interested and I'll try to dig it up.]I'm changing the orientation (horizontal instead of vertical -- isn't that how bricks usually go?), and for some reason decided brown would be better than cream for the "mortar", and I'm not having a border.
It's supposed to be an easy pattern that requires no matching of seams; just make a ton of little rectangles with all your scraps and go! All the little pieces can be done by hand, and I zipped together the rows on the machine. So why has it taken me for. ev. er. to do this??
Now I've finished the top. Somehow I've got to commit to a backing and get this sucker together so that I have something to work on at dance class! (I wait, Bridget dances. You can get a lot done in an hour and a half... IF you have something to work on!).
