Lemons and Lemonade - Not Beyonce Related
|The Simple Quilt That Almost Took Me Out|
I'm reluctantly writing this post because honestly, I didn't get much done last week. Life happened! I did manage to do a little sewing that I'm extremely happy about.
So, let's get to it. Quilting has always been amazing to me. BUT, I don't think that's my thing and I'm a stay in my lane kind of girl. BUT, I was recently introduced to a wonderful fiber artist, Sharmie from Digital Sphinx Designs. Her quilts will inspire you to want to at least give it a try.
I decided to give a basic quilt pattern a try. It has been a pain for weeks. Nothing, and I do mean nothing lined up! So, I thought of a possible visual diversion. Tried it after I got some feedback on the idea and the correct term for what I wanted to do. And I think it worked.
I learned that those really gorgeous quilts take a lot of work. There's cutting, measuring, design, attention to aesthetics, ironing, sewing, sewing, and more sewing. I'm toed and the quilt isn't done. I'm only done piecing the top together. I'll share all the details when I'm done.
I cannot imagine working on those big intricate quilts. I'll just stay in my lane. A small, simple one every once in a while is enough for me.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Drink it slowly so you can savor the experience.
Until next time, Smooches!
