It’s Sandy here again! Cindy has been in Florida helping our older sister move into a swanky new home, so I’ve been feeling left out of all the fun. Not that moving is fun when you’re in the middle of it, mind you, but when you’re done and you’ve purged yourself of all the empty sour cream containers you’ve been hoarding to use for leftovers and there are no more old slivers of soap gumming up your new, clean shower, and you’ve got some new furniture to boot, well, there isn’t any better feeling, is there?
To console myself for not being able to participate in the move, I spent the weekend inserting and then extracting lots machine quilting threads on a couple of different projects. I was pretty discouraged, but then I decided to go small and started on a leftover block from my Boudoir quilt. This little thing has been hanging around in my “to quilt” pile for a while now. I selected a red and white woven fabric for backing, pinned the two pieces together to make a sandwich and bravely got to work.When I was finished, I found an already-made piece of black binding in my “leftover binding pile”. And lo and behold, maybe smaller is better when one is practicing to become a machine quilting expert?
Here’s my sewing buddy, Boots, casually looking for some love!
I wish you a week of clean quilting starts!
