my quilt


I love the look of this quilt (via here) - I want to crawl in and stay for a few hours.

I was making a quilt. I started last March...and haven't picked it up again since last July. It's no where near it's completion...I always assumed when I moved back to Arizona I would have lots of time to work on it (I was wrong.) And I realized a couple weeks ago that I never once washed some of the fabric before I started compiling the squares. So I washed the squares. And it unraveled the edges, distorted the shapes, and ripped some of the pieces. I ruined it.

Such a heartbreak.

I will fix it though. At some point.

*note: this isn't my quilt...I am enamored with looking at quilts online...and this is one of those captivating finds of someone's work.

  2. Aww, I'm sorry, that sucks! But like you said, you will fix it (eventually) and it will be beautiful. You've got a lifetime to get it done, don't stress. =]

  3. what sarah ann says about a lifetime to finish it. that's so true! if we all thought about our little projects that way they wouldn't stress us out so much.
