The last project I bought on my Anniversary trip was a kit for a Snake River Log Cabin. This quilt has THOUSANDS of pieces. For 2 months now, I have been thinking - "What was I thinking?" Only to remind myself that I saw this the year before and have loved it each and every time I have seen it. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can,...
So I started by figuring out how to organize my pieces. Since I am frugal, I didn't want to spend money on silverware organizers or anything else. I finally decided to take some empty cereal boxes from the cupboard and create my own organizers.
These are the organizers with the pieces that I cut out while trying to get ready for our Washington D.C. vacation.
Please notice the smallest pieces in the b compartment, they are only 3/4" by 1 1/2". Again, what was I thinking?
Yesterday my little girls spent the night with my mother-in-law. Perfect time to dive into this project so that I would know what I was doing when everyone was around! Thank you Meemaw.
Here is the one block that I finished yesterday. It took about an hour and a half to put together. Each block has 52 pieces and there are 64 of them.
I also put these partially together. Maybe I can finish these today.
I can't wait to finish the quilt, but need to remember to enjoy the whole thing. This is the kind of project that will make me a better and more confident quilter. There will definitely be some smaller projects thrown in so that I don't loose interest in this quilt.
I think I can, I think I can,...
Well I better get back to sewing.
