So, I really think I've just totally freaked myself out about the whole finishing 5 quilts by the end of the month thing. I'm pretty sure I can do it now!! Why? you ask. Well, I will tell you!
Well, while he was busy downloading and playing his new game, I started working on Quilt 4. There are 7 rows, and I finished the first 4 today. I am really excited. It took about 4 hours to get as much done today as I did, and most of the first 2 rows were already done! It's a very difficult pattern though, so I'm sure that's why. It has nothing to do with the fact that I am slow, because I'm not. I actually sew pretty quickly. One year at Deer Valley I did 4 quilt tops....in just a week! It is a personal record.
Anyway, so while I was totally freaking out this morning about not being able to get my 5 quilts done, plus the 4 that I have for clients, and the possibility of 3 more for a client, I have now calmed down a lot. I think that if I just put in a couple of long days with the Gammill, then I'll be able to get it done. And, I am quite confident that I can get it done! I'm really good at quilting, at least I think I am....and I'm pretty quick. Usually Marshy is really good about it, too. He watches movies and listens to my music with me and everything. He is such a good boy. And very patient.
Anyway, I will definitely keep you updated on my progress of Quilt 4. I didn't take any pictures, because I want to wait until it's done. It doesn't really make sense right now, but it will once it's squared off and has its borders on.
