I have a quilt top! (and cute kid behind the quilt top!) And I love it! It was a lot of work. A lot. I solidly worked on it almost everyday -well, every night after Miles went to bed. I followed the book’s instructions pretty much exactly, except when assembling the columns for quilt top. They were all laid out in order, then I stacked them one on top of each other, and forgot what order I gathered them in. So, the left most column is really supposed to be the far right column. I don’t think it really matters – at least not to me – but that’s been the only deviation from the written directions.
Oh, one more mistake. And this might be my own mistake, not any errata in the book. I ended up with an extra small block. When putting together the quilt top, I figured out which column was missing a block (it was much shorter than the two columns on either side). Easy fix.
And here’s my geek out for this post. Look at how I completely nerded out with my project planning/tracking. I’m not really sure what I’m trying to accomplish with this spreadsheet, but I like it. Quantifying my efforts in a datasheet really excites me. I mean, having a completed quilt top excites me too, but this spreadsheet really pushes me over the edge.
Its really a toss up at this point, which excites me more, the actual completed quilt top, or my nerdy spreadsheet… Anyone else think I’m a nerd?
