As I was carefully, slowly stitching along with GREAT concentration to stay in the seam line, this happened...
Right there a quarter inch from the start. You know stitching in the ditch is the hardest machine quilting as one moment's loss of focus and your off the seam, and it shows like a neon sign.
I know you've done this too.
As I'm wrestling with this bed quilt, determined to finish it, my good friend Nancy asked innocently if I had finished my Valentine quilt for this year.
If you are new to my blog, I have made DH and I a V-day quilt every year of our marriage. I've shown a few here and show them all in a lecture on working in series.
I do have a concept, and a title. Now I must make the quilt to match.
The pictured mess above is my valuable scrap box of fusible pieces. Almost no matter how small, if it has fusible ironed to the back, it goes in this box. It's amazing how many times I reach in here to add a little applique.
So this is how I work. I have many projects going at the same time. As I am quilting one, I am thinking about the next. You?
