I don't know about anyone else, but I made the mistake of telling my mother that I'd started quilting. Now I have to make her a lap rug for Christmas - and she'd already picked out the material!
After much debate, I finally got myself psyched up enough on Sunday to I get out the charm pack - Moda Printemps - but then I had to figure out exactly how I was going to do with it. Complicated was out. My sewing machine should have an L plate for all the experience I've had! After much YouTube surfing I finally settled on the Disappearing 9 Patch (wonderful tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Co.). I was confident that I could manage it.
So, to cut a long story short, after a couple of hours - and a few unpicked rows - I had a cute central piece for mum's quilt. Now I just have to add some white around it and decide on a binding, not to mention the backing. I might just squeak this in in time for Christmas ;-D
PS - I have to do a bed footer for my aunt too!
