What's on the wall today?
Where do I begin the story on this one?
A long long time ago I asked my son if he would like a new quilt for his barracks room.
And he was like "Uh I guess."
And many many moons later, I've only gotten this far. I had this grand idea to make all the stars a different fabric...what a dum dum! Yeah it looks great but its not so fun to work on. To do it this way you have to lay it out on the board first and then pick up the four fabrics surrounding the center of the star, make the star points, put them back, and then take of the next four fabrics. So its a constant back and forth...and it ties up my design wall....grrrrrrrr.
To top it all off, since he's here I decided to dig this out and put it up on the wall to get his opinion. And what does he say? "I thought you were going to make me a Marvin the Martian quilt? What the frick dude?! Somewhere along the way I missed that memo.
Now what do I do? As of right now I have a deadline of January 2012. That is when he returns from his tour in Iraq. Do I make this quilt and tell him to deal with it? Or do I slave away on creating a Marvin quilt?
Sheesh...kids I tell you!
