So, finally...

I gathered enough courage to start doing this, the Double Wedding Ring Quilt.
I have managed to get the fabric washed and dyed and ironed, and I fear I have way too little of it... and I assume I have to change my plans considering the stuffing of this quilt... But - that day is at least two weeks away, so I don't need to think about that today.

Anyway, I was here happily procrastinating starting this job, because I thought I already have adequate patterns and I know enough how to sew quilts, having done a couple... Ha! I had to tweak the pattern a little, and there was some problems with dyeing, too, and all kind of things like this take time.

Also, I noticed that I don't have time to make this quilt two block a day. I need at least 3-4 days to quilt it, because it is big, and then I have to sew the blocks together into a top, and that takes some time, too... knowing me, I will be doing it by hand, and even though I am a quick sewer... Eh... I know it's a correct word for someone who sews, but it is also the word for... well... sewer :-D Ok, I'm a quick seamstress. :-D I sew quickly.
Anyway, I need to make at least 3 blocks every day, and starting today. And it's already 6 P.M. I don't think even I can manage making three 40cm by 40 cm blocks, english paper piecing, double wedding ring, in the 4-5 hours there are left of the day. :-D

Well, well... if I don't have time to make this for the wedding, they'll get a gift card of it, and that's that.

But... I'm still terrified of cutting fabrics :-D
