Repetition needs a bit of different
Maybe doing two quilts at the same time wasn't the best idea in the whole world?
But I think it is easier than making one whole quilt and then starting over again from scratch and making the second one.
I hope I am saving SOME time!
I then cut down the line, clipped the thread and pressed the seam toward the brown.
I am about halfway done with the first stack. When I get them all pressed, then I will clip the "rabbit ears" - the bits of fabric that extend beyond the square - while I am watching television.
When I am working on a big project like this, it helps to look around my sewing room.
Some of these items I had in a former lifetime, others are brand new.
The flower quilt was made for me by my friend, Gina. It is the only quilt I feature that was not made by me or my Grandmother. I do have a quilt I won which I do like, but I don't feature it. I love the Mom's studio sign but I never call it a studio, it sounds too lofty! The sign with the skull makes me laugh, it is so different from everything else!
In a world of repetition, sometimes you jsut need something that is different! For me, it's my crafty skull sign! I hope you have something that is different good in your life. But sorry, you can't have my skull picture, I need the laughs.
