Except. Me Mum decided that she wanted a small lap quilt. Mind you, she has a lap quilt that I made for her. See it here. However, she wanted something smaller...like 3 x 4 feet. So, this morning, I dug out the Saltbox Harvest fabrics (2009 collection by Deb Strain) I had in my 'someday going to make a quilt with this' container and started planning.
I know, I know. I did it to myself. I could have told her (as sister Joyce pointed out) that I would buy her a fleece blanket for $5.00. But, no. I said, "hey Mum...how about if I make you one...and bring it with me when I come in 3 days" or something like that. I said what? Nothing like putting myself under the gun. So, just shoot me now!
Actually, it won't be so bad. Except, then I decided to make a snowball quilt. No just sewing charm squares together for me...nosirree! Must make it more complicated than it needs to be. Still and all. It's a small quilt and I am going to tie it, not quilt it. And, I am not going to bind it...just going to put right sides together, sew around the edges and turn it right side out. Easy peasy. Yes?
Yup, this will work...
Lot of trimming goin' on...
One row done...
Me Mum's going to love it! And, the best part? I have all the necessary parts here! woohoo!
I have something fun to tell you about, but it will need to wait until I get back.
What are you up to this weekend?
