It was truly a mirage, a delusion, an outright lie I told myself. I really, truly believed that by making this piece, I would have a new, empty drawer to fill up with 2014 scraps. It took me the entire week of my design/ piecing time that I had allotted for the week. ( A new goal for 2014 -divide studio time into design and finishing time).
The quilt is pieced but I made little headway in my quest to use the scraps. The drawer remains really full but the top is pieced. And my irrational obsession of using up curvy strip sets has been temporarily taken care of.
It turned out to be about 40 x 52 without the facings on it yet. I will baste it tomorrow and have it in line for machine quilting. I think I will back it with flannel , use on it my couch. and go back to my list of what I should be working on!
More about what I have planned for 2014 in the next post.
