happened!!!!!! I have been working on the quilt that will be raffled off at the zoo. Things were going along nicely, that was until I found a mistake in the pattern after I had already cut a big part of the fabric. Luckily I bought quite a bit extra, so I escaped tragedy. Then I found another mistake in the pattern. On no Mr Bill, say it ain't so....! Phewwwww, thank goodness there is still some extra fabric. Now not trusting the pattern, and after all I am a professional, (this is what we say at work when we mess up :-)), I proceed by following the pictures and knowing that I have the situation under control. So much under control I managed to sew the wrong fabric to all the wrong squares. Rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip......Ok this went on for wayyyyyy long, but after ripping out what I sewed wrong I am back on track. I love quilting, it is such a humbling sport :-)! I know these blocks look pretty harmless, but believe me they about did me in. There are all kinds of interlocking blocks happening and I hoping tomorrow night to start putting it all together. Please everyone keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!
Now with my ego slightly bruised I had to get something done just to get back on the horse. My Red, White and Bold quilt was back from being quilted, so I managed to get the binding on it. Love this quilt, and after washing it, the quilting looks so wonderful. Then I made a purse for the shop using charm squares out of the Swell line from Moda. Having two successes I think I can continue on!!!
Hope that all of you are having a great week, and that you are keeping your ripping to a minimum. I am bringing back the cupcake that my friend Nurse Carol made me just to remind myself to be POSTIVIE!!! Thanks Carol. See you later alligators :-)! PS -blogger spellcheck isn't working for
