I mentioned earlier that I'm doing a commissioned quilt for a woman named Kristen in Seattle.
The pattern is called Spice Market and the whole thing is going to be done in some really spectacular batiks that she carefully chose at the local quilt shop.
I've only made a few really large quilts - less than a dozen, and never in Batiks!
I finished cutting out the fabric and I started on the sewing when I discovered that the half-square triangles, of which there are MANY, are a very odd size. I don't know why I didn't thoroughly read the pattern before I committed to a time frame.
So here I am marking each and every HST by hand before I am able to stitch it. Wow, that's time consuming.
I originally promised this quilt by the end of the summer, but it's been rather slow going so now I'm looking at something closer to the end of September.
Fortunately, Kristen was very understanding about the situation.
Of course my son reminded me this weekend that I promised to make him a Robot quilt for his new Big Boy bed ~ leave it to the kids to NEVER ever forget.
