I set it aside for quite awhile because I didn’t want to drag out my folding table and sewing machine again, but I finally got back to it and finished up what I can.
Here’s as much as the pieced top as I could manage to get into one picture. The good thing about being this far away is that if you don’t zoom in, it’s not as obvious just how much my squares don’t line up. I decided to just go ahead and embrace it, and pretend like they’re not supposed to line up!
And here’s the back that I put together. It’s not what I had in mind, but since I’ve never done this before, the fabric I had didn’t work out quite the way I thought it would. It works though. Like I said… embrace it! It’s a learning experience, right?
Anyways, I’m kind of stuck at this point. I have the front, the back, and the fabric for binding. I can’t really do anything else until I get batting, which I can’t justify buying right now. Even then, I’m not sure how to go about quilting it… I don’t think my machine is really designed for that… but I might be able to do some straight lines. I need some diet pills for my fabric appetite as it is, so I’ve got some fat quarters that I bought on sale after Christmas that I’ll be trying a couple of small projects with soon. Hopefully. And hopefully those will line up a little better than the first set of squares did.
