A couple of years ago, I purchased 2 charm packs of Fresh Cottons. I hadn't quilted in a long time, and these were the first pre-cuts I ever bought. I got excited about a pattern in a booklet called "Just Desserts", and came home and started sewing.
I hadn't sewn in so long that I forgot that the presser foot on my Pfaff is not 1/4 inch until I had a bunch of them done. Did I rip them out? Nope. I just kept sewing.
And then I stopped.
I don't remember why, I just stopped. And those blocks have sat there in the WIP pile all this time.
So the other night, I went and found the half-finished bottoms. Yesterday, I searched for - and found! - the fabric for the top half.
I went to JoAnn's and bought some Jumbo ric rac.
And today I finished Block #1. Easy peasy, really. Must have taken all of 10 minutes, including changing the thread on the machine to sew the ric rac.
Despite it's non-standard seam allowance and general wonkiness, I think this will be a pretty quilt.
I'm sending the blocks out to the bees tomorrow. I can't wait to get the blocks back and make the quilt!
