|One of the brown squares quilted.|
I like numbers because you can do things with them. For instance with this quilt I'm trying to finish up, I counted the squares of each color, then totaled them. These numbers then helped me to devise a plan. I like making plans as much as I like numbers.
So with 15 brown, 13 blue, 14 green and 14 purple squares. I came up with 56 squares that I need quilted within 2 weeks. Oh it's that nice - it comes out to 4 even.
Although I like the type of four better
Oh happy Me! I now have a plan. 14 days and each day I have to get at least 4 squares finished. That sounds doable doesn't it?
Yesterday, I was off work with my husband. I started quilting the brown squares. What a pain in the booties. The metallic thread kept breaking. Each square had the thread break about 4 times. I changed needles, changed types of needles, I cleaned the machine (several times), I threaded and re-threaded even more times. In the end I just kept going, until wa la 15 brown squares were finished!!
Maybe, just maybe I'll have this quilt finished by the end of March. Please, just don't hold your breath on that! LOL!!
