I had a moment of panic when I read this post that indicated that my Scrap Attack quilt had to be completed by March 28 in order to be considered for all the goodies. I truly thought I had until the end of March, literally March 31, to finish it. Of course, had I read this post, I would have known the deadline so much sooner. True to form, I skimmed and made assumptions, all of which were wrong.
No matter, it turns out that the quilt can be mostly finished (the top must be finished, ready to quilt and bind).
Mine definitely qualifies – I have yet to hand sew the binding. Other than that, I’m pretty much as far along as I had hoped to be by now. True, it’s not “done” but according to the rules, it’s done enough.

It’s amazing, when making a quilt, how quickly things wrap up after hours of measuring, cutting, piecing, stitching, measuring, stitching, and measuring some more.
This is one of those times.
I have so enjoyed making this scrap quilt. I had some doubts at the beginning (that it might be boring, that I might not like the aqua solid, that some of the scraps didn’t “go”, etc.) but really, really, I like it. I’m getting together with the MMQG gals this weekend for a sewing day and I hope to begin quilting it. If I want to be “in” for the Scrap Attack contest, I have to finish by 3/31. It’s looking pretty good (hope I didn’t just jinx myself).
Linking up to Lee and WIP Wednesday.
