Nap time quilting
Nap time quilting. It’s a popular pastime among quilting moms, there are even entire blogs dedicated to it. And now I’m one of the nap time quilters cramming as much into nap times as possible.
It’s amazing what you can get done when you know there’s only and hour, maybe two to finish it in. Last weekend I managed to straighten up the house, do five loads of laundry, breastfeed at every feeding, have playtime after and finish six large quilt blocks and 18 small ones.
I was feeling pretty proud of myself when I nearly got caught up on the Block of the Month. Yes, you’re not the only one who gets behind on those. I had some May, June and July blocks to finish. Basically I’ve been behind since I gave birth.
I was hoping to get the first pieced border together for both quilts and sewed on, but Angela turned into a little crabby pants as soon as I got one side put together. Apparently she had cooperated long enough, which was plenty for an eight-week-old.
If I can manage to keep up that level of productivity on the weekends, then I just might have hope of staying caught up, finally finishing the nursery decor sewing and just maybe finishing my Christmas New York Beauty in time for my guild’s quilt show in September. We’ll see on that last one.
When do you find time to quilt?
