I know I have been MIA for awhile, it is so hard to keep up with blogging when I work so much, but
my work will be slowing down for awhile, so I am hoping to get back to crafting.
I am so bad to have a couple projects going at one time. I am always making bonnets if I get a spare
minute. And am always on the lookout for some reasonable primitive fabric.
I have been enjoying cross stitching, and have a project that I have just started.
Also I have been contemplating for a long time to make a quilt/comforter with my scraps of fabric.
I have been trying to do some research on how many 5" squares you need to make a quilt.
I am thinking that I am correct, but it seems to be 504 total. Now if you buy the charm packs I know it is
easier, but I want to use some of my scrap fabric. Have you ever tried to cut 500 squares by hand, I have
300 cut 200 to go. Then I am thinking of making the 9 Patch disappearing quilt. After sewing the 9 patch you cut it
down through the middle hortizontal and vertical. This makes 4 more squares. You rearrange them and then
you sew them together. It looks like a hard pattern, but I am hoping it is very easy.
Then not knowing if I can quilt a big quilt like that on my simple machine, I may just knot it like people used to do. Any pointers or suggestions will be appreciated on what I should do. It will probably take me months if not years to finish it. he he But at least I am getting started. I have heard of people using a flat queen sheet
for the backing any suggestions or pointers on that.
Wishing everyone a beautiful day!
