Does that photo not say it all? As you know I have decided to attempt quilting - with the most cherished fabrics I have : my children's clothing.
I did a million and one things this week as homeschooling starts TOMORROW. Aside from tending to my to-do list, I managed to cut up the fabrics.
Then I played musical chairs with all the little bits and pieces. After rearranging them for the one hundredth time, I would leave the room for a bit then come back to the ping pong table where I have them all spread out ... you know what I did next - I rearranged them- AGAIN. Then I had to start sewing them together. Somewhere I read that quilters use 1/4" seams. Can that be? That is sooo itty bitty.
Sooo teeny tiny that I had to pull out ALL of these
Near the end of it all I finally got smart and bought this
I am obviously a slow-as-molasses learner. Wish I had had it in the beginning. I could have saved all that Excedrin Migraine medicine for a lampshade I am currently wrestling into shape. Wish me luck for tomorrow. I will be in ninth grade for the second time in my life and seventh grade for the third.
