"In a Jiffy". And well, I made some modifications, but it DID go together in a jiffy....and the stopped. So eventually last year I was on a mission to finish UFO's and I found a soft pink and cream polka dot for the back (I found it at M&L for a steal....2.98 a yard! whoo hooo!)
A few weeks back I was on a field trip with my beginning sewing class, and a bit of divine intervention happened. One of them pulled this off the shelf:
It's PERFECT. The colors are an EXACT match. It's the cream background, the pinks, the greens, the blues the browns....ALL RIGHT THERE. So of course I swooped the bolt and immediately bought a yard. (Can't hurt to have leftovers in the stash, right????)
I look at it as the balm to soothe the itch of beginning sewing!! :) *kidding*
Anyway....my quilt is nearly bound. I cut the binding and sewed it last night and ironed it this morning. I am alllll ready to put it on my quilt (I might try to sew the first round during my lunch, so I can clip it and it will be ready to sew down tonight!!!)
This baby is almost OFF the UFO list!!!!!!!!!
It's amazing what excites me these days.
