About six years ago I made this quilt top from scraps.
Many times I have gone to quilt it but realized that it is one row wider than it is long.
So for six years I have been too lazy to fix it.
Fast forward to yesterday.
Got this quilt out. Counted squares.
I thought to myself....hummm Barb when did you fix this quilt??
The whole time I am getting the backing and batting ready to quilt I am thinking....and I might say, thinking real hard.....
When did I fix this quilt?
So.........................fast forward to quilting it...... went to count the squares to know when I could flip it under the machine to make it easier to quilt.
So...what we have here is a failure to count properly?
Talk about fun....I am so "Scrappy Happy" here I could just run around in circles....
I will say I used the wrong fabric fusible, each time my needle would hit one of the hearts my thread would fray and then break a few seconds later. YEs, had tons of thread breakage.
When I got done, I had one wrinkle in the back, I thought I was being careful and checking. MISSED ONE!! It is staying.
So...........no temper tantrums even with all of the thread breakage.
A few times I was just going to wad it up and put it in the corner but I told myself that if I did, it would never get done. So I pushed through and finished it up.
These scrappy quilts are just fabulous, especially when they evoke so many memories....
