Happy WiP Wednesday, Friends!
It was bound to happen at some point in my quilting journey… I hit a wall. A big fat one last night. Nothing. Nothing I did was right… I wanted to just practice some quilting on a mini-quilt sandwich I had leftover from my FMQ class, and it was going great! Much better than I expected…
I was having fun, and I was really enjoying just playing around on my machine.
(Which I admit I’ve been kind of afraid of since I bought it…)
So, I thought, let’s go for it!
So I started quilting. Really. actually. quilting.
Because, you know, the baby was born 2 weeks ago, and he should have it before he turns, oh I don’t know, 18!
How do you guys do it?
That joker got heavy. It’s just a baby quilt and after 8 lines I have to start over. Some were great and then another one would pucker. So, now I’ll be taking out way too many stitches and my poor quilting ego is bruised. Bless it.
So, not to be a complete waste of life, I moved on to my lovely stack of rainbow charms.
I cut 168 squares and then got ready to iron.
And made it through
all of them the cool colors in one set.
Not my quilting day, friends.
How you guys quilt anything larger than a place mat?!
(No, I’m serious?)
