As I was debating how to organize my afternoon I decided to see when the One Monthly Goal posts for November were due. I had several half-blocks on the edges to finish quilting. Good thing I looked because tonight's the deadline.
I quilted this afternoon so I could finish and meet my November monthly goal and link to the November finish link-up at Elm Street Quilts.
Regarding deadlines: I often imagine things will take less time than they actually do. Other times I imagine I have (or will have) more time than I really do to finish. Either way I find myself racing to meet the deadline. The only times it's a problem are when I haven't made a decision about what I'm working on and/or I've started way too late. I try to avoid these situations but they sometimes creep up on me (like today). November's been a busy month.
I debated how to quilt those plain squares in this quilt. I tried the stitching pattern on the left but decided against it. I went with the easier (and less time-consuming) lines on the right. (But who knows, I may go back and add a triangle within those triangles.)
Next I'll cut and sew binding, but I probably won't get that done this week.
I'm linking this post to One Monthly Goal - November Finish Link Up at Elm Street Quilts. Thanks for hosting, Patty.
