Anyway, about my productive day... I decided this weekend that it was time to start a new quilt, but I didn't want to spend much money (hopefully no money) on it. So I searched through my mother-in-law's fabric stash, as well as my own. I found lots of fabrics that would be fun and coordinate well. I even found a piece in my own stash large enough for a backing. After pulling together lots of fabric remnants, washing, drying, and finally ironing, I got to cutting. You see, I want to make my own version of this quilt.
I instantly fell in love with this quilt and I bookmarked the blog post on the spot. I just thought the raw-edge appliqué was so neat and I loved the randomness of the fabrics. This afternoon and evening, I cut all my squares...48 8-inch square and 48 6.5-in squares (which now have to have circles cut out of them). With a two-year old, a dog, and a hungry husband, this certainly didn't happen without interruption, yet I still managed to get so much done. I even managed to finish the book on CD from our trip this weekend.
I'd call all that quilt prep a very productive day. Now let's hope I didn't spend all my productiveness on the first day of the week!
