Sew... not knowing much about quilting (although my mother was a fabulous quilter, and I inherited her stash), I took a class at a nearby quilting/fabric shop.
Sew... we made a runner. I learned a lot. Mostly I learned:
Sew in haste...
Rip out at leisure!
As the clock ticked closer to the end of the class, I began sewing faster. When I completed my runner, and held it up, it closely resembled the letter "C". It was a cockeyed mess.
Sew... I pulled out the seams, 'squared' the blocks, and more carefully pieced them together, being sure to keep my 1/4" seam allowance. My second attempt looked much better than the first! I was proud to give this to my Mother-in-Law when I saw her in May.
Sew... one day I was at a fabric shop and my eye was caught by a bolt of cloth with a lovely pattern of warm colors. My colors.
Sew... I found a quilt pattern (an "easy" quilt pattern) and went shopping for fabrics that complemented that which caught my eye, and made a table cloth.
Sew... after going through numerous spools of thread, and lots of time sewing in "the dungeon", on the new super machine... I completed another project. What fun!
Sew... I wonder what I should make next?!!
