Knowing this about myself, I have still decided to make a quilt from start to finish in 18 days. Seems like a strange goal, but there's a reason. (Isn't there always?) My husband's daughter has a birthday coming up on July 22nd. In all the years I've known her, I've yet to make her a quilt. And I know she'd appreciate it. And she's just so sweet. So this is the year. Unfortunately I didn't come to this decision until yesterday, July 4th. Hence, 18 days to make it.
One of the benefits to having a large stash is that I had all of the material on hand. I quickly picked a pattern - Star Struck by Cozy Quilts. I made another version of this quilt several years ago and really liked the pattern. In fact, the quilt top is still hanging in my closet waiting to be quilted! The throw size only requires a jelly roll, 2 yards of a light background and 1.5 yards of a dark background.
