In 2013, Quiltmaker Magazine published a multi-issue quilt mystery entitled "Lazy Sunday." The quilt is designed by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville fame who also writes the "Addicted To Scraps" articles.
After keeping up religiously all year with each and every mystery step, I packed up the completed top (prepared binding and pieced backing) to get ready for our impending move to Illinois.
Last week, I pulled Lazy Sunday out of the cabinet and decided it was time to get it quilted up. I got it loaded up on the frame and discovered I did an extremely poor job of piecing the backing (it was not at all square)! So, I left it...until Lisa and Debbie arrived...and we fixed it (actually they fixed it...) Why is it that I just had NO motivation to "figure it out" until they got here? It's really not that difficult, just frustrating when it's all loaded up and has to be unpinned and taken down again, only to be put right back up hours later...grrrr....Oh well, it's done and I'm very happy with it! I did have some issues with those beautiful pointy borders. A few of the pretty purple points got caught up in the binding making them not so pointy, but I've decided that I'm just not going to worry about them.
