The Weekend – Quilt Progress Report

I had played with the idea of going out to a lecture this afternoon but I think I’ll stay home.

Yesterday I got all my little pieces sewn together into rows and managed to sew four rows together into a piece. That’s four of thirty-one. A ways to go but it still is definite progress and I think I’ll continue on. The worry I had about dealing with the seams turned out to be not so bad, although it is important to remind myself – SCANT seam! SCANT seam! frequently. Ironing is not anything more than the normal tedious process.

The pieces look miraculously and suddenly smaller – that magic moment that happens when there are no raw edges sticking out to cloud what it will look like.

So I think I’ll stay home and see how far I can get. Do some laundry. Drink some iced tea.

Livin’ the life, in other words.
