Still, to satisfy this spools itch I picked up one of these
and settled in on Friday night with these
There's enough in one charm pack to make several of these little quilts, so I cut enough to make one for myself and one as a gift for a special lady (to be revealed later). By Saturday night I had a basted mini quilt. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to have such rapid satisfaction from a little project. You know yourself, don't you?
It's not perfect, but I do really like it. I won't tell you mistakes I see, but I do feel better seeing them in the cover photo of the pattern, too. Not everything has to be aligned, right?
Any way, by Sunday night I finished quilting and had the binding on. Brilliant! There were a few problems along the way, but I'll tell you all about that later. You'll see the finished mini later this week once I have the binding finished off.
My glamorous assistant was with me on Friday night in the sewing room. She started off all pert, cute and playful chewing on her bone under my ironing board.
But quickly deteriorated into a snoozy pup. She can't take the pace of making a quilt in a day. Bless.
