felt bad, so here you go
so after my last post i felt like a weenie…sure, i’ve been busy, but i can find an hour or two for sewing projects…so i whipped up a little quilt using the pattern we talked about a few weeks back. at first i decided to cut out crosses instead of squares because I thought it would be easier, but after about 3 minutes trying to sew the various tetris pieces, i cut them all into squares.
does anyone know how to line up squares better? i think my cutting skills need improvement first of all, but besides that i can’t for the life of me get the corners to all line up. there must be a trick.
the final product is smaller than i wanted, but to be honest i was getting sleepy and my back was starting to hurt, so i didn’t cut anymore. it’s pretty interesting how much the quilt shrinks when you sew everything, which makes sense.
any ideas for quilt stitch patterns? i just did the border and then two diagonal stitches before calling it a night. i’ll finish the rest tomorrow, but i think it’s cute! all in all i think it took about 3 hours, including cutting time (and a break for a pb&j sandwich).
