Of course, because I'm insane, I joined the Doll Quilt Swap.This is one of my favorite swaps and I would hate to miss out on it. I wanted to finish my quilt before I left for vacation. (Isaiah and I are joining my family in Ocean City (Maryland) this week for a little vacation, and while I feel bad about leaving John, I really, really need a vacation.) I had originally ended doing a "storm at sea" quilt because my partner likes traditional quilts, but triangles and I just don't get along too well. I saw this quilt pattern in a quilt books from the 70s. I didn't use the exact pattern and kind of made up my own directions as I went. This would be a perfect scrap busting quilt. I'm really pleased with the way it came out and almost want to keep it for myself!
Alright, now onto packing and cleaning! I always feel so crazy getting ready for a trip!
