Uncle (Frivols #8)

The following pictures tell you why I’m saying Uncle on this project, as there is No Way I’m going to be able to quilt it and bind it and label it, all before the end of August.  Which is tomorrow, in case you didn’t notice.

Cutting.  And I only made one mistake.  Not bad, not bad.

What is with all these half-square triangles in everyone’s design?  HSTs! HSTs!  AAAAGH!

I got one block this far late one night, then went to bed.

The next day I got this far, all while listening to Book 4 of Bruno, Chief of Police.  And that little habit is all due to Bette, who suggested I might like them.  I do. The real title of that book was the Devil’s Cave.  Our hero, Bruno, saved the day.Frivols 8_9

Twenty-nine thousand pieces of sashing, and eight million borders are sewn on. It’s actually looking cuter.

It kind of like died here.

I cut the batting last night, organized (but didn’t sew together) the backing.  But I had to finish up another quilt, and take photos, and meet a bazillion deadlines, the least of which is to revamp this entire room, which used to be the guest room, but will soon become our office.  Well, mostly my husband’s, but I will have a desk too, and all our modemrouterprinter1printer2extrapaperofficesupplies will soon leave my sewing room and live here.  Can’t wait.  See me about November for the finished product/project.

I’ll get to the Frivols #8, but just not by August 31st.  But I did try.
