Slow and Steady

Wins the race, right?


Can you name that fabric?

I dug this out when I saw that Amanda of The Linen Fox announced on Instagram that she’s going to be doing an QAL of The Inside Out/Plus quilt (Cluck Cluck Sew).

This project has been in ‘archives’ for a few years… I cut a few years ago and then did nothing with.  I thought it was completely cut and all I had to do was sew, but as I’m sewing and sewing and sewing, I’ve discovered that I have to cut a lot more of my background fabric. I was very happy to see that I had some of the background fabric in my stash so at least I don’t have to worry about going to purchase more of that.

As you can see, I’m trying to get a little head start on the QAL.  I’ve never once finished one on schedule….it is my best chance!  I didn’t have to work on Monday, so I spent my day sewing – probably 4 hours worth.

This is the Plus version of the pattern.  I also have fabric to do the Inside Out version.  For that version, I’m planning on using Lucy’s Crab Shack…that lets you know how long I’ve had these projects on my to-do list.

The fabric is Reunion by Sweetwater.

It’s Wednesday, so I’m linking up to Lee.  Happy Hump Day, Y’all!




About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

  1. You crack me up! When is the deadline for this QAL? I think that there are many “signs” telling you to finish this quilt!

I want to hear from you...
