Well I finished re-sewing the goofed up patches. It actually didn't take as long as I thought it would. And I've started adding the longer strips.
After a few blocks.....I set them aside to take a break.... and decided I wanted to do some more quilting on Jim's quilt. Almost done. I should have it off the frame today. Tomorrow I'll get the label made and binding sewn on then I will have hand sewing left.

Today we're going to Laura's graduation this afternoon. Then to their home for a reception with family and friends. That will be fun.

BTW.... remember when we went to Deb's to help them move in? Well in the process of unpacking things I found the first *quilt* I ever made.
I made this for Scott. (years ago)
He was just a young boy and already had a passion for sports.
His favorite team was (as you can see) The Warriors.
So I made him a bed quilt. Somehow I copied their logo and cut the fabrics out and put this thing together.
OMGosh!!!!! I had NO idea what I was doing at that time.

I did know enough that if I would cut out material I could attach the words etc to the base fabric and sew an edge around it.
So I tried. hahahaha criminy!!
I did NOT however, know that I was supposed to actually quilt the thing. Or.... that I should have made the stitching either closer (satin stitch) or farther apart (zig-zag) So I just put it under my needle and did the best I could, with what I had at the time I must have thought I'd done a pretty good job or I would never given it to him. Of course.... what would he know anyway?
This thing is sooooo bad!! hahahaha

  1. From a now more experienced quilter it would be so bad but it was loved by your boy so it is a piece of art.
