Quilting




I like to sew. Unfortunately, I rarely do. This is a project I did sometime in my last semester at BYU. I finished up to this point rather quickly, but have felt somewhat lost since then. I feel I have done a nice job and don't want to ruin it by "figuring it out" on my own. I need to get the back ready to go and quilt it, finish the edges. It is queen sized and kind of overwhelming.

My Mom sent it to me a few weeks ago. I am excited to finish it up. I hope I will get the chance and a mentor who can help me out.

Can you tell I look a bit overwhelmed in the picture?

Also, I am a bit frustrated how yellow some of the squares look. I thought they were lime green.

Wow! You know how to do everything. Now I know how I'll spend the two months I have home in Iowa...making you teach me how to be crafty;) I have noticed a lack of posts from the blogs I check lately too. I'll try to put something interesting up soon, but this week has been crazy.

I also need to finish mine. If i don't do it now, when I have essentially nothing going on in the evenings, when will i ever do it?

I'm doing a baby quilt and it's not even patchwork and it's still taking me ages! Good luck. I feel lucky to have several good quilters around me lately. But I bet Iowa has some quilters, too.
