I’ve officially made it half way through Lady in Red! Here you see blocks #1 – #6 of 12.
She’s come a long way since you’ve last seen her! As a matter of fact, she’s come a long way since Sunday. I was on week 2, well behind the QAL. I don’t know why or how I got such a head full of steam, but I’ve been determined to catch up with the rest of the group. Only one block to go and I’ve done it. Of course, there will be a new block on Thursday making me one behind again. I’m getting completely caught up over the weekend though – even if it kills me.
Do you love her and want to make her too? This pattern is part of Janeen Van Niekerk’s Art Quilt Quilt along, Girl in the Wind. You can join up now and get all the blocks published up to this point.
I tend to way over commit myself because I’m not so good at estimating how long something will take. With this project I’m keeping a semi-watchful eye on hours spent and keeping a running tally. Hopefully I’ll learn something!
Thinking about/reviewing pattern and instructions: 1.5 hours
Searching for and settling on fabrics: 2 hours
Pattern prep/piecing first section: 2.5 hours
Pattern prep/piecing second section: 2.5 hours
Pattern prep/piecing third/fourth sections: 6 hours
Pattern prep/piecing fifth section: 3 hours
Pattern prep/piecing sixth section: 2.5 hours
Total Time Investment: 20 hours
So what do you think? Do you like the red? How about the green? Sometimes I walk by and love it. Sometimes I walk by and just about fall apart over it. I have lots of quilting and embellishment plans. Maybe I’ll love it when it has some more going on? hmmmm….
Do you think she needs a name? I keep thinking I should stop calling her lady and give her an actual name, but it seems forced and forced is never good huh? Maybe I’ll just call her Lady. Good enough for Kenny Rogers and Chris DeBurgh – good enough for me!
