|more of what I'm not showing you yet|
I think I held my breath the entire morning. I am so scared of messing up! I have two more weeks and I couldn't stand the stress. I called up Flo (Butterfly Quilting) and in a panic I asked, "Flo! You gotta help me! What does understitch as far as possible mean!?" I swear, I put myself on the steepest learning curves possible. Flo came over and explained it in a sentence. She lives nice and close, but was on her way to the other side of town. I thanked her, then finished off a glass of apple cider (XXX). I looked around the sewing room, put the cause of stress aside, and made this. It took me 2 afternoons and that includes the time spent planning, cutting, and pressing. Please excuse the stray threads...
|beautiful fall day: super sunny and super windy|
It's made of left-over solids from the quilt I have on the cover of A Needle Pulling Thread (Summer). I love those colors! They are so '70s. As for the prints, I passed by a bundle of them at a department store (HOW EMBARRASSING) and I just had to pick them up. I knew they were the perfect colors! Lucky me... gee, I should know better than to buy fabric without swatches in hand. But it worked! WHEW. It's just for me. It was a well needed divergence; a real no-brainer project. I know exactly how I will quilt it, and I can't wait! ; )
I suppose I just needed to get this baby out of my system. : ) Woohoo! Feels good, and it's all for me. How do you like them apples!?
