"Tracee, um, do you think we can hang out tomorrow - you know, no computer, no Bernie?" Ryan calls from the station and asks.
PERFECTION! He can help me rip out my quilting on Bo's quilt. No computer, no Bernie. ;)
"Of course sugar tits." I reply
Only, we've caughten up on all the free episoides of White Collar, please tell me you all have TV show suggestions!?
So tonight, I'm bound and determined to get my rows for Pretty in Pink done, I decided to do 8 across instead of 7, that will make this quilt 66" x 77". Here's how I'm making the horizontal rows.
First, every fabric is 4.5" x 1.5" and they are alternating, pattern/solid. I sew 6 together x 10, the 11th one has 7. Here's my pile...
Some of my co-workers RAVE about this ironing mat. It's suppose to really make your seams when ironing. I find it irritating, my fabric sticks to it - urgh! Why am I using it then, you ask. Total confession, I folded my ironing board down and well, um, Louie peed on it. I swear, anything white and he's got to lift his leg... perhaps tonight he and I will have a one on one concerning his territory problem. Look Louie, that is mine - take your pee outside!
I then sewed 6 to 6 and trimmed. I didn't do this on the first couple of rows, but in the end it will give me a straighter quilt.
and just like that kids, row 4 is done.
Let me know if you have any TV suggestions... Cheers!
