Once upon a time, I had a very misguided notion that I could whip up a king-sized quilt rather quickly. So in March of 2010, I picked a scrappy pattern, dug through all my fabric bins and sewed together 113 blocks over the course of a month. Then I began an unusually difficult pregnancy, and we moved across the country, and had a baby, and moved back across the country, and along the way I realized the only quilting design I liked for this pattern had to be done by hand. It's the hand quilting that really set me back. Each block took about an hour to do. I got fed up and took a lot of long breaks along the way. But today.......the quilt is finished!!!!!!!!
I must not have completely learned my lesson though because I already have fabric in the washer prepping it for my next project.
