Thanks to a nice comment from Suze this noon doing the daily hour on the Watermelon quilt was more fun.
Thanks Suze! Your motivation is very appreciated :-)
I thought about whether to catch up for the 3 lost hours Wednesday through Friday or not, but could not decide. I do not like to play catch up really, but I want this quilt ready for hand quilting as soon as possible and preferably before next weekend !
I decided to give one extra hour a try, and one extra hour lead to another and now, by midnight, I can say I have put 4 hours in altogether through the day and are all caught up :-)
Earlier today all I had was the half done cornerstones and now the cornerstones are done and joined with the horizontal sashing and the vertical sashing is also done, waiting for the last 3 big blocks.
I am so happy I bought some extra of the flower 100 % linen fabric - or so I thought, that I had a lot extra I mean.
I bought more than the pattern called for and all I have left is 1,5" x width of fabric.
I must admit I broke a sweat there a moment and thought I had to little, forgetting about the joining of row 3 already !
This is not a fabric you can buy everywhere and it is 5 months since I bought it, so the chance of being able to get more is rather slim.
It feels good that I made it with what I had ! Big sigh of relief !
