The 76 Year Quilt

Younger Nicci used to quilt.  Like a lot.  I haven't done it in awhile because, well, my time is now filled with Eddy, Norman, Rupert, Ada, work, traveling, house projects, bicycling...  you get the idea.  But recently I came across a pattern I just couldn't resist.  It'll be like this:


And it only requires about 37 million steps.


Eddy calculated the ironing alone will take 80 hours. Not to mention all the sewing... Here's my first batch of fabrics:


Eddy also got me some nice new sewing tools so that I could speed quilt (ha!)--a new cutting mat and a new blade for my rotary cutter.


You can watch the work unfold here on the blog (or whatever technology we are using 76 years from now when I finally finish this thing.)
