inspired by this quilt
Alissa was kind enough to share the specifics for her gorgeous Land & Sea quilt (thanks Alissa!). I used her measurements as a guideline for this quilt. Seriously, I'm starting to think I have an extra gene (or am missing a gene, possibly?) that prevents me from following a pattern/directions exactly. The quilt measures approximately 65" x 80". It went together very quickly.
And in order to prove that there are no quilting elves that live at my house (oh, my, wouldn't that be nice???) here's the breakdown of time that I spent making the quilt top which includes cutting time (this is especially for you, Leah S.).
I started yesterday afternoon and I spent:
2 hours (during nap/rest time)
1/2 hour before supper
45 minutes after the kids went to bed
45 minutes before the kids got up this morning
1 hour after breakfast
for a total of 5 hours.
Now I've got to figure out something for the back (from my stash), which is becoming more and more challenging.
