I've always said that I don't quilt. I don't quite get it or the obsession with it.
Wiser women than me just gave a knowing smile and said "not yet....", "you will...."
AND I HAVE!!!
The urge has been there for some time. I've looked at the quilts in my local fabric haven (or is that heaven ??) Amitie - yes I am lucky aren't I - and am in awe of their skill.
So I jumped in head first on Saturday. Jenny at Amitie was divine and helped with fabrics and heaps of tips as I have no idea what I'm doing. She's so patient!
It's all cut & stitched together with the help of Kiddie no. 1 - it's for his bed. And we loved doing it.
Now to start the hand quilting and I'm feeling very nervous..... have I chosen the right colours? Can I do it properly? Will I finish it before he gets his drivers license ?
Any advice from super quilters would be greatly appreciated.
