My darling hubby has watched me make quilts for many people and babies.
Recently, after I made my BIL's quilt, I counted up how many I've made and what was to come this year. It's a very big year for significant birthdays. I said the total and he said "you mean I'm not going to be number...." Oh, the guilt trip!
I have made a big one for our bed, but I suppose that was an 'us' one not a 'him' one.
It is partly his own fault. Over time he has liked a quilt pattern for which I duly collected the fabric only to change his mind THREE times.
The guilts won out over Easter.
He now has a finished top at least. I do intend to quilt it by the beginning of August as I want to have an entry in the Queensland Quilters Quilt Show.
So he can stop looking neglected!
I used a Comma layer cake by Zen Chic and the large Twister ruler, holding my breathe every time I made a cut.
I used the leftover pieces from cutting out the blocks to make the scrappy inner border.
What I'm not so happy about is my effort at a Sew Together bag. It came very close to the bin several times.
My sewing is terrible and it really has rocked my confidence. I've been saying to myself that it was going to be an orphan all the way through making it. I don't like how it looks, but, more so, I don't like how it 'beat' me up. I have the pattern for the Bionic bag. I might just have a go at it and try for a better looking finished product, one that will be allowed out of the house.
I'm just jealous at all the fabulous ones I've seen in person, on blogs and IG.
I will get over it and stop obsessing, another thing my darling says to me.
Take care, everyone.
