But first there is some unsewing to do. Several weeks ago I agreed to take a quilt kit from Quilts for Kids, and I had a darned good time making it! I even machine-quilted it all by myself! The organization asked volunteers to consider making a second quilt from our own stash to send along with the one made from the kit. I had some terrific blocks that Turbo had given me, and found just the right go-withs for lattice and border, and got the whole thing pieced and sandwiched and when I started machine quilting it, the TOP bunched up at the end. On TWO sides. Exasperated, I took the whole project and cast it aside.
Out of sight, out of mind, one would hope. But alas, it doesn't leave my mind. On Friday and Saturday, we'll have a whole lot of family in, and I'm thinking that ripping out that dreadful machining is just the project for me to have on my lap as we visit. Perhaps I won't even notice how odious my task is!
