Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

Life update

Hi all! Sorry for the silence. I’ve had a few people ask – I am fine, just busy.

I’ve primarily been focused on finishing the QAL quilt top. That was complete and delivered to the quilter 2 weeks ago. It looks amazing but I unfortunately can’t share that early.

I’ve been making great progress on the 1,000 cranes. I do 3 per day which will get me to finish by the end of the year. Here are the first 300.


I realized that with the QAL top done, I don’t have any projects immediately on deck (other than a quilt repair). My friends got married a year+ ago and I promised them a wedding quilt (Lovers’ Knot). It’s going to be queen sized and has a few thousand pieces, and I’m about 5% of the way done. I’ve been working on the blocks for that and have made a little progress. It’s not an exciting picture but the finished product will be amazing.


The reason that I’ve been so busy is things are crazy at work. I’ve been training our newest employee and training takes forever! (This is Charlie, the office bunny.)


I’m taking a few day quilting vacation this month, so expect more regular updates!
