Yeah, but not very often this time of year. Summer is for digging in the dirt. For being outside as often as possible.
For picnics. And camping. And swimming. And canning.
But when the need-to-sew bug bites, who am I to ignore it?
I started making these little potholders as practice for quilting. I’ve wanted to make a quilt for a long time.
But, the whole process seems so intimidating to me. I’m a small project kind of girl.
I love to whip up Sara Lynn an outfit in an afternoon. I’m not so big on those non-instant-gratification-projects.
I purchased the fabric for my first quilt well over a year ago… maybe even 2 years ago. Time to bite the bullet.
And break out the handy-dandy walking foot.
It wasn’t so bad after all.
Except for that darning foot. Little bugger.
No matter how hard I practiced, I was simply awful at free-motion quilting. (As evidenced in the bottom potholder above.)
Oh, well. I guess that means my quilt will have nice little symmetrical lines. That appeals to me. What a relief!
