Well people, it’s been six weeks since the voyage began. And a voyage it has been!
But I am finally making headway! I had to work through some problems with mom’s sewing machine (it may seem cute and antiquish, but it has a mind of its own!)
Yesterday, it was cold and dreary so I worked on quilting after all the feeding was done. Before yesterday, I was cutting, pinning and sewing on only one 12 inch block at a time. It takes four of those to make a full quilt block and it was taking me forever to get anything done!
So yesterday, I turned on Netflix (I started Heartland and I’m hooked!) and entered the new world of mass production!
Pretty soon, I had squares everywhere.
And then I had strips everywhere.
I also got to engrossed in Netflix and this happened. Whoops!
A little backstory in my line ‘specialty’. When I was little, I used to move my play horses one by one in a straight line until we got where we were going and to this day, I’m still a huge fan of when things match up. So it hurts my ego a little to know that my quilt doesn’t perfectly match up.
But to have convinced myself that as my first quilt, it’s ok to be a little off (and sometimes more than a little).
That isn’t sewed together yet but still gives you a glimpse at my progress! After I got done sewing and looked at my interesting lines, I forgot to take a picture. Tonight, after ironing them, of course, you can check them out on Facebook!
