I can make that!
And I finished her toute suite, don't you think? (OK, it was an attempt at a bilingual joke!)
I am very happy with it and my whole family is excited to see if Ally likes it. But, I am glad Christmas is still a bit away as I have to finish the Mad Plaid quilt and I didn't make much progress today, I was too undecided about the borders.
I decided to make pieced borders, I went back to the quilt store, looked at the sample and what there was to purchase. That will be the main goal tomorrow. I promise!
I wanted to make some for presents.
I looked online but I couldn't find a pattern. Rats! Why don't people post the patterns I want for free on the internet? Is this too much to ask?
So I unfolded it all the way and then I took out all the seams. It is just a rectangle sewed in the middle, cleverly folded and stitched down with the half moon pieces sewed in there with a snap closure. Hey, I just happen to have purchased a fancy dancy snap putter inner!
I CAN MAKE THAT! I am not going to sell them or sell the pattern, I am just making some as back up copies! I can hardly wait to get up tomorrow and work on these projects!
I love that feeling, that "I can make that" realization!
