This week's Project Quilting Challenge was "Across the Universe". I spent days with no idea and no plan. Finally on Wednesday, I decided I would use the big star tutorial from Jenny Doan to make a bed quilt for me. (I'm still using my Christmas version so it is time for a change.)
I grabbed a bunch of blue fabrics with stars and a great white on white print covered with numbers. (I was still hung upon 42 as the theme for my quilt.)
I got started on Wednesday evening and worked until I discovered that I did not have enough white fabric.
So Thursday's piecing was interrupted by a trip to the fabric store. But that is another story. (http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2014/02/3-yard-minimum-or-answer-really-is.html
It was pieced and basted by Friday afternoon.
At which point the quilt spoke... in a very loud voice and said it wanted to be hand quilted. Yes. the quilt top that finished at 72 x72 inches and had to be completed by noon on Sunday wanted to be hand quilted.
I finished at about 2 am Sunday morning. Hey, I had 10 hours left to go!
The poor quilt doesn't really have a name yet. It's working title is Lemoyne Star because... duh, that is what it is. However, it seemed like I was looking across the universe when I was trying to get it finished so it probably needs a name that reflects that. Ideas? Suggestions?
You can read the rest of the story on my blog. http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2014/02/pq-54-lemoyne-star.html
And now I am going to cuddle up under my nice new quilt and get some rest. Fortunately, we have a week until the next challenge comes out.
