You know, it always helps to read the instructions. I read about how to put the Quaker Bag together. Now I know some things to be careful of. Certain motifs should be stitched in the same color. After all the stitching is done, the interfacing is put on. I may be wild and crazy and put it on as I get each piece stitched. I know the danger here is losing the piece once it is cut away. Sometimes I like to live on the edge.
So here is Pocket One so far.
I found out in my reading that there are five pockets.
After I get Pocket One stitched, I'm going to put it together. That will give me some motivation to keep going. I am actually getting used to the over one stuff and it doesn't seem so bad.
And now for something totally different. The Baby Quilt has been started!
I made every mistake known to man on this first piece. I cut the wrong direction, I sewed the wrong side, I sewed the other wrong side, etc. So I thought I should try a second block and see if it went faster when I did it correctly. It did!
I'm thinking I need about twelve blocks. I am varying the fabric for the sails. I'm wondering about switching the water and the sky fabrics. I don't have very much of either one. Maybe I can get more on the internet. I'll figure out about the sashing later.
I went walking at the Y. Talking with another walker makes the times go way faster.
