:: quilt and sew ::
Anything and everything to do with thread, bobbins, fabric, machine sewing, and hand stitching has been on my agenda alllll weekend! I've actually put my hooks aside for a change....can you believe it!!! It's been some time now that I quilted anything and thought it was high time I did.
I found a very large bag of fabric scraps at a garage sale over the summer that has been sitting way back in the closet so over the weekend I sat down with my lovely little cutter and started cutting away. I do have to say, I am not your average quilter. I do not follow any rules. None what-so-ever!
I do not measure very well while cutting so that means my seams rarely line up in proper order. Well.....really, when I am sewing them together is when everything begins to go south. So...there are lots of horrid mistakes in this quilt.
I did however try to hide most of them and so far....so good. I used the old faithful sewing machine with a fancy zig-zag stitch, plus....it gives it a little more character.
Anyways, who ever said a quilt had to perfect? I know this one won't be!
I'll be back when it's finished.
