Quilting Means Math (Which Makes My Head Hurt)

Remember those rag quilts I'm making for the girls? Yeah, it's been awhile since I've worked on them. Or thought about them. Or talked about them. I think I started buying fabric for them in the spring of 2010. year. Not bad.

I realized that I only have about 2 weeks of summer left and I want to get those quilts made before the fall. So yesterday I scrounged around in the (not yet clean) sewing room and found all the pieces. The sack had torn and they weren't all in one place anymore. I even found the original plan I had made in my sewing binder. BUT....I haven't actually looked at said plan in a really long time so it took awhile to make sense of it all again.

Unbeknownst to me, Sweetheart was taking pictures of my hard work. They are hilarious.

Counting squares....

and checking to see if they've all been sewn.

Wait a minute. Something's not right here.

Oh dear. 

This one cracks me up. I am deep in thought. You can almost see the smoke coming out of my ears. 

All right. Dadgumit. Let's count all these again. 

My super organized makes total sense customized plan for the quilts.

Yes Mom?
Get that camera out of my face OK?


  1. Haha! Super funny! I'm really bad to get tired of a quilt project and set it aside for a period of time. Coming back to it is always a challenge as I try and figure out where I was, what I'd finished, and what's left to do! Have fun finishing them up. :)

  2. I love it! So, I am assuming you got it all squared away? (no pun intended)

    I am eager to see the end result and perhaps the plan.


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
