I made a simple quilt this week.
A quilt FULL of scrappy strips is a favorite of mine.
I did add some bigger chunks....
Some of these scraps go WAY back.
I ran out of the blue binding fabric and
absolutely LOVE the yellow blue stripey addition there!
I broke one of my sewing "personal challenges"
and BOUGHT backing fabric!!
Isn't it cute???
I was tempted to buy a lot more!
I also finished this quilt this week.
After mending it
and quilting it
and binding it...
I have given myself an honorary degree.
HARD WON, mind you.
Some of you read last week's post.
I did NOT end up appliqueing the open seams.
I ripped a little and sewed a little
and fretted a lot.)
You can now refer to me as.....
"the QUILT DOCTOR"
This honorary degree is given after
many hours of repair using specialized equipment.
(seam ripper, scissors, sewing machine, needles, etc.)
It is earned after at least 5 quilts are
mended in a satisfactory way.
Satisfactory requirements state that the quilt must be USABLE.
These quilts never are quite right in the end.
Just like broken body parts...
there are scars.
and they look ALMOST just right.
I have mended quilts like this at least 5 times...
so I consider myself to have earned this
I'm OFF to order a wooden sign.
I will have my new LOGO engraved on it
and it will hang PROUDLY at my front door.
what are YOU making this week???
