I spent some of my time as a little girl in the fabric store my parents owned. My mom is an AMAZING sewer and quite the perfectionist. But…I am a bit on the impatient side when it comes to sewing. I want to buy the fabric and have the quilt instantly done. I just want to be able to say, yup, I totally made that!
This time around, I wasn’t going to take my typical approach to quilting; buy a bunch of random fabric, have no measurements and no absolutely no plan. I usually start to cut, sew and pray to the quilt Gods that I have enough fabric to complete the project and not totally trash it. If I don’t have enough fabric, I usually just make a smaller quilt 🙂
This time, I’m doing it the right way thanks to my mom. She made me a pattern which told me how much to buy, how many squares to cut, what size AND even went to SR Harris with me to ensure I didn’t by all the wrong stuff. Guess what happened, I actually cut and sewed all 120 squares together and didn’t screw up once! There were no mishaps, no need to remove stitches, nothing! IN YOUR FACE quilting Gods.
I may be a little overzealous by posting this before I actually finish something. But who cares. Up next…finishing the back, adding the quilt batting and the binding.
