Yesterday was Friday Night Sew In. I had two projects to work on, the zipper pouch and the quilt for my Dad. I got to work early because I wasn't sure what my evening schedule would be. So it was partly Friday afternoon sew in for me.
The zipper pouch was smooth sailing! Woohoo! And I found a great little tip in my files that made the zipper much easier. Don't use pins, use Lapel Stick. LOVE that stuff. I do wish they had a fine tip stick, which I sent them an email about. But really, I love it.
It is hopefully going in the mail tomorrow.
Once the kids were in bed I jumped in again.
The quilt. Hmmm. Not such a success.
I finalized a plan on paper. Did the math. Cut the fabric. Laid it out. YUCK! Re-arranged, and re-arranged some more. Still nothing. Then I finally got something that kind of works, but there is not enough fabric to complete the pattern AND my camera battery died. AND I can't find the charger.
*sigh*. So I am stalled out.
Here are the photos I got before the battery ran out of juice.
|All cut and ready to jump in and make a great quilt!|
|Round 1 (the plan), not so great.|
|Round 2, no yellow blocks, UGH!!|
