Have you taken Prednisone?
It's a little wonky too. It kept wanting to stretch on me as I quilted it and it is the biggest quilt my machine will make. I didn't measure it, but it is a twin size and will be nice and warm for someone. It reminds me of quilts long ago where they used up the fabrics they had and none of this fancy stuff. It would not win any awards, but I love it more than some of the quilts I see in quilt shows. It is a practical quilt and will be sent to Utah this Friday if I can get the binding done.
I will be putting binding on a few of these quilts because I've overloaded my binding Buddy Rhoda with about 20 quilts last week. She already had a stack of quilts to work on and has a whole list of quilts that she is making. She is the queen of applique and makes the prettiest quilts without a pattern. She just finds a picture on the internet and prints it out really big, cuts that out and makes the quilt. They are gorgeous! I'll have to share a couple of her quilts here. She is a self taught quilter too, like many of my Binky Patrol friends.
It seems like the 'real quilters' are too busy spending 2 weeks on a baby quilt to help out with charity quilting. Those of us who don't really know what we are doing and are just playing at quilting and not following the rules are cranking out charity quilts fast because we aren't worried about what the quilt police will say. Yeah, they have some tucks and warpy borders, but we don't enter our quilts in shows. We use them :)
