Master Bedroom

  Am I the only one who makes quilts for everyone except for myself?  It seems that in the last two years I have made multiple quilts but they never seem to be for me.
  I know I don't ever get that much time to quilt and don't do near as much as other quilters out there, but it is still a hobby I enjoy perusing.   I have made 3 bedspreads for my daughters, one for my mother and mother-in-law, 5 for neices and nephews, multiple baby quilts and even one that I donated to a friends cancer cause auction.
  Last summer I decided it was time to make me a new summer and winter quilt and get rid of this bedspread I have had for the past 8 (did I really say that) years.  

I chose the colors, summer: cheerful and bright, winter: warm and cuddly, and patterns, summer: Metro Hoops and winter: A- Maze Me.  That fabric was even all purchased but I ran out of time.  Now, being March national quilting month, I decided it was time to work on this project.  

Here is my todo list for this quilt
☑️ Make HST (360)
☑️ Make pinwheels (90)
☑️ trim pinwheels to 10"
☑️ use QCR to cut pinwheels 
πŸ”˜ Sew edging on pinwheels 
πŸ”˜ trim pinwheels to 9 1/2"
πŸ”˜ create rectangles (418)
πŸ”˜ trim rectangles to 2" x 9 1/2"
πŸ”˜ create rectangle sets (209)
πŸ”˜ Layout quilt
πŸ”˜ Stitch together top 
πŸ”˜ Baste
πŸ”˜ Bind

My goal: 
-Tuesday get the squares all cut to 10" and then cut with the Quick Curve Ruler

-Wednesday/Thursday sew the curves onto my 90 blocks
-Friday square up the blocks to 9 1/2"
-next Monday/Tuesday rectangles
-next Wednesday  place the pieces 
-next Thursday Sew the top together

Can I get all this done?  Maybe, well I hope so!  It is national quilting month!

I have just got this time sewn together (it was in the works for 2 1/2 years!

This is Craftsy's free pattern for 2013 BOM.  I used Robert Kaufmann's Spot On fabric.
