Bored and frustrated
I have finished Ryan's quilt top. It is a horrible example of how bad I am at math. My measurements were so off that what was supposed to come out twin- sized is a baby blanket, so I had to add borders to it to make it bigger (I had bought pre-cut packages of fabric so I couldn't just make more quilt). I would like to sandwich the thing and get going on the quilting, but I only have beige quilting thread so I need to buy some in a more appropriate color. I know what I want, but the closest fabric store is an hour away and I can't go there just to buy 2 spools of thread. I called the little quilt shop in town and they don't have it. Ugh. So why bother laying out the quilt back, blanket, and quilt top and pinning it all together when I can't do anything after that anyway? So I am frustrated and eager to get going on this. Ugh.
