Forever Plaid

This week I have been cutting squares of plaid like crazy. I think I cut over 3000 plaid 6" squares. Whoa.
Last night I finished assembling 27 kits for throw quilts made-up entirely of plaid squares. Each quilt has over 100 different fabrics. Needless to say, I was excited to finish this project. Not that my own plaid projects are done. I'm doing something fun with the scraps from all that cutting. I'll post soon. And I'm making my own "Boyfriend" quilt, so I need to actually sew something. My machine will be so happy to have the dust blown off and gears running again.

  1. 3,000 plaid squares? Wow. Can you move your fingers after that cutting experience?

  2. Seriously. I would have totally given up after 2999. PS what's a boyfriend quilt? I've heard of boyfriend jeans...

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
