Also, as it turns out, I have now completed my favorite part of this quilting project. The remaining 2/3 are of very little interest to me, and represent the really hard parts! I have to come up with 7 1/2 yards of fabric to back it with. Sew some massive seams to piece it together. Then I have to make the world's largest quilt sandwich, figure out how to bast that ginormous sandwich. Then quilt it?! Then bind it!!! Friends, will this quilt ever be finish? Or it is doomed to be a mear blankette at the foot of my bed?!
My quilt. 1/3 done. Sigh.
P.S. I think I just invented a totally awesome word: Blankette. You may use it, if you like.
P.P.S. In case you are wondering, you're seeing my existing quilt showing through my new quilt. My existing quilt was from Pottery Barn. And the $250 or so that I paid for it is starting to feel like highway robbery!
