My guild is making these for the January BOM, so even though I am far away, I am going to make some too! These two are mine, and I need to make some in navy, teal, and purple and mail them in before the January meeting.
On Wednesday night, I will be getting on a plane to fly to Korea. I will be on that plane for 13 hours! Due to my forced captivity, I will have no reason not to darn in the ends of this crazy stripe blanket that I began when I was stationed there in 2014.
My long term goal is to have this be a giant square blanket when I get on the plane to fly home to CA. But my goal for this month is to simply darn in as many ends as I can on that plane ride! Baby steps.
Finished the last few stitches on the binding a little bit ago. Posting with 45 ish minutes to spare. :P
What I learned from this quilt is that I really need to take my time with the prep/basting. Smooth it out and secure it well before I begin quilting. I'm so eager to get started, but it ends up all baggy and droopy. Still - I'm hopeful it will be snuggled in and well loved! <3
Linking back to our host, Patty of Elm Street Quilts. I'm grateful for the accountability and motivation I get from this monthly link up!
