Last Spring, I took part in AmandaJean's Quilt A Long. I got most of the blocks done before starting a new job, summer hitting and spring soccer hitting.
Since I couldn't finish any of the projects I wanted to, I pulled this top out to see if I could finish all the stars and setting blocks and get it into quilt top form. The problem is, I used a good bit of my brown fabric to make a shepherd's costume for the church play. I thought I had plenty of brown, but.....I don't. I will have enough to get this last row done, and that will probably be it.
I would go buy more brown, but....I brought this fabric years and years ago. I found some similar brown at JoAnn's in their quilters cotton, but the shade is off just enough that I don't want to use it.
Okay - I'm going to have to look at it in the daylight tomorrow - here the color doesn't look that bad....maybe I'm daydreaming and freaking out over nothing!!!
Why in the HECK did I use it for the Shepherd's costume? I could go to my church and get the costume and cut it up but.....that seems like an awful lot of work. And my church paid me for my time and supplies for making the costumes, so I feel funny taking it back. And I went into this quilt knowing I was making it to fit our king sized bed and that I would be adding borders to it. So I'm thinking I need to finish the stars and do some pieced borders around it to get it big enough.
I have to stop working on it for a little bit - the kids are at my BIL & SIL's spending the night - so Todd and I are going out to eat at Bob Evans. Whooo Hooo (and we have a gift card to use there that he got for Christmas).
