Have you noticed that I LOVE making quilts? I'm not saying that I do a wonderful, perfect job of it, because I certainly don't! But I do have a lot of fun with it, and that's what it's all about, isn't it? I read the most liberating thing the other day about quilts, "Better finished than perfect". Isn't that great!!
Anyway, I like choosing the fabrics and the design, starting the sewing together of the pieces, the pressing.
Then when the top is done, I like choosing the backing and pinning it all together with its batting filling.
Now comes the part I'm still having major grief with - quilting it on my sewing machine. Oh well, I'm getting better. :)
I had leftover squares this time around so I made a table runner for the dining table (finally!!).The chickens seem to be happy with it.
If you look closely you can see Bruno on duty through the chair at the end of the table. Wherever I am - he is! I like that.
And by the way, what is up with this? I had actually sewn a piece of this into my quilt top before I realized there were little swastikas all over the design! No thank you. I do not want anything of that sort anywhere near me! I'm really disappointed that MODA would put something like this in one of their collections.
Have a great day!
Hugs and kisses,
