Last night was my 10th Friday Night Sew In and I spent
the majority of the evening working on the borders
of my Hideaway Quilt.
I ended up having an allergic reaction to butternut squash
that made me cut my evening a bit short.
I finished the borders this morning.
From a distance, it looks pretty cute.
I've decided that I'm going to show you the
"wonk factor" up close and personal.
If you are squeamish...
you may want to cover your eyes....
Here's the good....
and the ugly.....
I learned a lot during the process of making this quilt
and I'd like to think that if I made the same quilt again today,
it would come out better.
That's what learning new things is all about :)
When I was a little girl and first learning to sew,
my mom (the professional seamstress) used to say to me
when I was disappointed about the outcome
of a garment that I sewed that was a bit wonky:
"walk fast and no one will notice" :)
Ah....words to live by!
