I'm Giddy...It's Like Crack, Only Better!

It is coming together!
My 12 half yards of fabric are starting to look like a quilt!
I'm so excited, I can't hardly handle it!

Look at all these pins...

Now if you know me, you know I am an impatient crafter.  
I like to sit down and finish a project before I walk away.
Hence the finish the 7 week quilt along in 5 days...

So things like pins are just annoying to me...they take so much time...
but I am so intimidated by the idea of making a quilt that I am following each step with precision.
47 pins per row of precision....

Look at all those pins & straight lines & ironed seams!!!
I can hardly contain myself!!!

Check her out, my first two rows sewn together!
My heart is racing...I'm not kidding!
I am such a nerd!...I know it.

I'm thinking of naming her...or would that just be weird?...

47 pins = perfect corners!!!
Check these babies out!

And for the first time in this project, I feel like I can do it.

I. can. actually. make. a. quilt!

I didn't use a single pin.
my a.d.d. is too bad.
but my corners came out CRAZY!!!
good thing I am nowhere near a perfectionist
I could only dream of having rad matching squares.
Maybe next time.
