Crown Me Queen of Procrastinators

1 12 2009

I’ve known for a whole year the name of the person to whom I would be giving a gift this year.  I’ve known since I drew the name exactly what I would make.  With all that time I should be sitting pretty, gift ready and waiting for D-day.  Not even close!  Four days ago I marked the quilt top.  Three days ago I quilted until midnight and finished it the next morning.  Then I blocked the quilt and bound it.  A few minutes ago I put the last stitch in the hanging sleeve.

Full Quilt

Whew!  Finished with slightly over 24 hours to spare.  Uh Oh, maybe I only qualify for Princess Procrastinator.

No one would know it’s last minute. It looks like you worked on it forever. It’s beautiful!

Just gorgeous. 🙂

What do you use to mark the quilt? For myself, I always wash a quilt before giving it away, so I know all markings will wash out … but if I ever do a quilt for a client that needs marking, I’d hesitate because not everyone washes their quilts *right away*.

What favorite marking tools do you use? (always looking to learn something new from those who are more experienced!)

Well Princess, that is one stunning quilt!!!! You only get to be Queen if you’re still sewing the binding on the way to giving the gift, though. Whoever gets it is going to be THRILLED!

Hi Sonya, Been thinking about you……….and thought I’d check your blog to see if you were out from under all your projects!! And here is my awesome quilt made by YOU! It is so beautiful and, hearing your story of procrastination makes it even more special. I know your “procrastination” means you have many things going and you don’t sleep. lol I absolutely LOVE my quilt and am taking it to my daughter’s house for Christmas so I can show it to all my family.
Am wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas. I am one lucky gal to have a friend like you.
