My niece will be graduating with a Master's degree
I pretty much promised her a quilt
for the momentous occasion.
and I have been so eager to get started on it.
Now that I have finished all of my other sewing obligations,
I can do just that :-)
By 'get started'
that I mean with the actual sewing,
because I have already invested quite a few hours
and doing the maths
(oh, the maths!!)
and, of course,
when I did my fabric pull,
I thought maybe I'd gone a smidge overboard
in the acquisition department,
but after making my first block,
I decided to change up my design a little,
and now I'm thinking I may need a few more.
Time will tell...
This one will be pretty epic
so I've broken it down into 'bite-sized' pieces
with (hopefully) easily attainable weekly goals.
I estimate it will take me 23 weeks,
so by starting now,
I can take 2 weeks off for Christmas
and be finished with it by the time birthday season starts in April,
a full 3 weeks before Jordan graduates :-)
You know what's really crazy??
We'll (Lord willing) be living in the new house
