At last I’ve begun piecing my daughter’s Fairytale Patchwork twin-sized quilt. I can’t tell you how heavenly it’s been to work with this giant bouquet of gardenias on the table, fresh cut from my yard (and a new discovery!) this weekend.
Since the linen sashing has finally arrived, it’s been coming along nicely. Cutting all that 3″ sashing was a good bit of work, but now that everything’s cut, you’d think it’d be smooth sailing from here.
Yep, things are lining up all right. And, I’ve only had to rip out one seam. But….
Liam cut the cord – the IRON cord! This is not typical behavoir for my 3-year-old. And, of course, this was like the ONE time I left the thread scizzors in full view. I was shocked.
Thankfully, Liam was not. Everyone is ok… except for the iron. And, now pieced fabric is backing up with no pressed seams in sight.
I was going to finish piecing the quilt top tonight, but I guess I’ll have to settle for making some progress. The good news is that this iron was about to hit the bucket. It had started turning itself off every 10 or so seconds. You can imagine the fun of using it that way. My new iron just shipped today. Coincidence?
P.S. Sorry for the wrinkles!
