An Epic Failure
Well, maybe I'm being a little hard on myself, but this one turned out pretty yucky. Good thing it's a Christmas present for my own daughter, but then again I'll be staring at it for the next __ years. I was into a groove when I started it and it was going pretty smoothly.
Then I attached my walking foot on my sewing machine! Apparently I must have broken it because I had my husband tighten the screw on the back of the foot and it got a little too tight. It took tiny little stitches and puckered and stretched the whole thing!
It doesn't help that I was in love with these fabrics. My daughter loves red (although not as much as she used to), and the starling fabric is just perfect.
I did hand bind the quilt, which is 36"x48". It was fun and the first time I tried it on a quilt. It was nice to sit down and watch a couple movies with my husband while working on it. Yes, it took a couple movies, hopefully I'll get a little more speedy someday.
I'm moving on to make a similar quilt for my other daughter, wish me luck...
Oh, and I also decided to treat myself to a little present from Japan...you'll have to wait until later to see what's inside.
