Do you like a challenge? Do you work better under pressure?

I know I do, I think I purposely leave it until the last possible minute to start a quilt for a challenge, thriving on the pressure... It doesn't really make sense does it?

I finished my challenge quilt for the Quilters'Guild of NSW challenge at 2.20am this morning. It was all finished with the binding, hanging sleeve and label all in place by midnight, but it really needed a little something else to finish it off. Two hours and twenty minutes later I was finally satisfied. I'll post a photo of it after the guild's AGM and the unveiling of all of the challenge quilts.

After just five hours sleep I delivered it personally to the guild office in the city. I met a friend (a first time challenge participant) and we made a day of it, travelling on the River Cat and enjoying a walk through the city and around the Opera House before travelling home.

Pity I left the car lights on all day. Waiting for the NRMA to arrive to start my car was a bit of a downer at the end of the day.

Looking forward to a good nights sleep tonight and a few days break before I head into the next last minute challenge.
