I'm a Procrastinator....

Yep, I waited until the last minute to finish piecing this Band auction quilt...I finished piecing on Friday night and got it loaded and quilted it this morning.  I have to turn it in to the head of the auction on Monday...

The saddest part of this story is that I knew I had to do it for a year and I had all summer to get it done.  There is another part (the kitchen painting project) that I'll save for another post--maybe that will be a good excuse for why this is so late.

An up-close shot--quilted with the froggy hand looking panto knows as Classic Stipple...LOL....made entirely from recycled shirts.  I like to call them "vintage plaids" so as not to offend the sensitive people who don't want to wrap up in someone else's old clothing...hahahaha....

I'm off to bind this masterpiece...or delegate the binding to Rebecca ;-)  Yep, that's the plan...and re-watch Whiplash (a great band movie with Schillinger from OZ back to his old tricks)....

Happy Quilting!
