When I got up this morning, I did not intend to make a quilt today. I had some housecleaning to do, some "battening down" of the hatches in case Sandy gets too rambunctious in the next few days, and lots and lots of laundry.
I didn't even intend to make a quilt when I went upstairs this afternoon after dropping the Munchkin off at a birthday party. I figured while he was gone I would take some time to straighten, and resort my Christmas present stash, and get my studio ready for a couple of commissioned projects that I am just waiting on supplies for...
And then, while straightening the DVDs and VHS tapes under the TV, I stumbled upon a remnant of fabric... a modern black fabric with multi-colored bars and stripes. A remnant that I have no idea where I got, and no idea how it got stuck under with the videos and DVDs.
And then I started cutting. And matching fabrics from my stash. And sewing. And before I went to pick up the Munchkin, I had 35 finished blocks ready to be assembled.
And by 10pm - after dinner and snuggling with a very tired boy with a tummy ache - and more laundry .. I ended up with this:
I am not sure how I am going to finish this one - or what I am going to do with it - but for now my Accidental Quilt is going in my pile of flimsies. Not bad for a rainy dreary afternoon. The cleaning can wait for another day.
