Let the Sewing Begin!

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before or not, but my sister and I are making a quilt for our parents for Christmas. It’s going to be a random placement of 4.5″ squares. You know, something easy and quick. We need to be finished by Christmas, and with the way we work, anything slightly complicated wouldn’t get done.

Quilt Squares

I finally finished cutting all of the squares this morning. There are 258 squares of 16 different fabrics. Some of them are probably a little wonky. I’m not so good at cutting. Not to mention that my rotary cutter has a hitch in it’s giddy-up. Oh well, I guess a little wonkiness will be okay.

I bought all of this fabric about a year and a half ago, I just never got around to making anything with it. (And I thought I had posted about it, but I can’t find it if I did.) Neta (my sister) has just started with the sewing, and I should probably be over there helping her instead of blogging.

    You’re a better crafter than I. I’m still trying to finish my first sewing project ever – an apron. A super-cute retro-style apron, that happens to have six darts in the skirt and requires a thin line of trim to be sewn around it’s edges.

    What the heck was I thinking when I can’t even sew a normal straight line?

    Good luck with the quilt, but I somehow think you’ll finish it in time and I’m looking forward to seeing the end result!

    I wish I had some sort of talent that I could use to make Christmas gifts with. I have plenty of time at work to do stuff, so it’d be perfect for me. Alas, I am talentless. 🙂

    Those fabrics look nice together. You should be able to get it done in time, especially if you are just tying it or stitching in the ditch.

    Good luck!
