I did it! I think it took me longer to arrange the scraps than it did to actually sew them together. The strip is just a teeny bit longer than the width of the quilt top, so I think I’ll need to add a bit to either end.
It’s ridiculous how excited I am about the Friday Night Sew-In. Since I work nights, I only have Thursday and Friday nights free (my “weekend”). I’m putting off date night with the boyfriend for a week so I can participate. I’m really hoping some of my new fabric comes in the mail before Friday so I can have it washed and start some new projects.
And yes, I know I said I had already blown my fabric budget for the month, but I also said that Tuesdays were my “Fridays” at work. I’m getting more hours starting this week (!), which means Wednesdays are my new “Fridays,” and I have a slightly larger quilting budget.
