*facepalm*

Yeah, I’m kind of annoyed with myself at the moment. I got so excited with the IDEA that reading the rules fell through the cracks. GAH!

Let me back up a bit. When Karla announced the 2017 Cherrywood Challenge I sort of lost my mind. First of all Cherrywood. Cherrywood. Second, van Gogh *deep contented sigh*.

Over the weekend the Mad Dash to Completion started.

In spite of a few moments when the desire to run from the sewing room nearly overwhelmed me the going was getting good. Teeny tiny stitches were forming well under the needle creating pleasing designs across the surface of the quilt. YaY Me!

And here is where I paused for a moment, grabbed the Challenge Information Sheet that came with the fabric and – get this – I READ it. Yes, dear ones, I read the instructions. Upon learning that my quilt did not meet the requirements of 75% use of the challenge fabric the drama exuding from my person may have qualified me for an Emmy, or an Oscar, either way you go.

In fine fashion I kept stitching for a while see:

A little metallic goes a long way. That’s a post for another day! I found just the right copper in my stash, and shockingly it’s not Superior.

So, in a few weeks I’ll finish the stitching along the “frame” then write a blog post on the character of the quilt. ‘Cause it totally has some character.

happy quilting!

Teri
