The physical manifestation of procrastination

What does one do when one has:
 
a) to pack an entire house;


b) finish a draft of a book by Sept. 1st;


c) finish crocheting a blanket, among other projects;


d) art journal everyday;


e) crit a friend's MS;


f) host a cookout for 7 and tea for 4;


g) keep a very active baby out of trouble?


Why, one cuts 400+ squares out of madras and white cotton then sews the little squares into strips






and the strips into squares






and joins them with bigger squares to make a madras quilt top, a king-sized quilt top to be precise, the first quilt one has ever made (excepting a simplistic baby quilt --the one hanging on the Sprout's crib).






I used this quilt  from Pippa Patchwork as inspiration but had to recalculate for size and the more abstract look I wanted (smaller squares inserted in the large, frex).


Here ends the procrastination (I'll do the back and the actual quilting while watching the Rugby World Cup this Sept/Oct). I must now pack for the truck must be loaded Monday night, and we are hitting the road early Tuesday morning.  Next time I see you I will be in on the flanks of the Black Mountains or on the shores of the Arcachon Basin.



Be well, my friends.
