One of my favorite classes in high school was sewing. Not because it was "an easy A" but because I really enjoyed the sewing. I wasn't good by any means. I sewed my homecoming and prom dresses, but I always needed my mom to help me with the sleeves, the invisible zippers, and the hem.
Later I made two jean patch quilts
(as you can see) and two rag quilts. All of these were large patches and very basic and one of the rag quilts was a baby quilt and pretty small.
It's been a few years since I've been at the sewing machine and I had never felt like I had a reason to go back. But when I was on vacation, I was introduced to this!
Now I obviously wasn't going to be able to get this at a store, so I'm making it. I bought the fabric, cut it, and I'm getting my sewing machine maintenanced so that I can get going.
When I'm done, I think I may make a quilt for all my boys, but I better not get too ahead of myself. This quilt is still pretty simple, but it is still more complex than anything I've done previously. We shall see if I can pull it off!
