I thought that was a catchy title for this quilt, instead of Nightmare on Elm's Street.
Don't get me wrong, I love this quilt but whatever could go wrong did, from the backing and batting, the longarm not working right, to my Jazz messing up. I just wanted to pull my hair out. I had wanted to do more quilting on it but decided enough is enough.
I eventually finished it up on my Juki. Sigh.... Sigh... I told my husband that I didn't want to give this to my son, for it is such an imperfect quilt. I even had some loose tension on the back. My husband told me to ignore it that our son would never know the difference.
The problem with what he said...."I would know the difference!!!"
Therefore, today, I put the binding on this quilt and then I ripped out all of the bad tension parts. It was worth the extra work because I feel so much better.
Still didn't want to give this to my son but.....I put it on my bed and fell in love with it, imperfections and all. I wanted to keep it but then I thought, if I could love it, maybe he would too....so Merry Christmas Nathan.
A few weeks back my sister, Jeanette from Inchworm Fabrics, asked me if I wanted to do another project together. Keep in mind that the last two projects we have done together we have not posted because hers are not finished. I am not railing on her, she works, therefore, she doesn't have as much time as I do.
We decided on the rail fence. I have to tell ya, I love hers more than mine.
