Ok, I've cut enough 2 1/2" inch strips to make a small size quilt or lap quilt. I'm going to try this out and see if I like it. I'm ready for the big game on Sunday and the sewing....
If I like this and think it's easy enough, I'll show it to my guild and see if they want to do one for our disaster quilt. They wanted something easy and quick for beginner level quilters.
(I still can't believe they call it that! The first time I heard someone say a quilt was a disaster quilt, I looked at the quilt and said, "that quilt isn't all that bad, I don't think it's a disaster at all." Everybody just laughed at me....Boy, was my face red when they told me that this was what they called it because they always had a quilt ready for when disasters strike. )
I'm going to the LQS tomorrow for finishing directions for the BOM. I have my border fabrics and all my blocks are done but I have no directions for putting the quilt together or cutting instructions. I want to get these and see if I want to put the quilt together like the pattern says. I'll go by there first thing in the morning then go to a friends house for a Creative Memories workshop.
I pulled out some of my pictures and I'll see what suggestions Sandy has for these. She's a friend of mine in my sewing group and she's hosting a Creative Memories day at her house. I've never been to one but sounds like it might be fun. I have never been a big picture taker and or scrapbooker but my friends are there and I have some free time. I'm going to go over there and see how I like it. Who knows, maybe I can make some quilting albums or something. We shall see....I did get my camera out and charge up the batteries ready for fun!
