I was so pleased with myself! Especially with my color choices. This is when I decided I could not get enough of color!
Or enough of fabric! I'm known as a very frugal person... Okay... a tightwad. But for some unknown reason when it comes to fabric it was hard to stop myself. With normal shopping, whether for groceries or shoes, I always have a pretty good idea as to what I am spending. But when I get to the counter at Joann's or a LQS and say, "How much?!" and then to my daughter's surprise SPEND THE MONEY we gotta figure something has changed.
Another change since I started quilting is my lack of fear. I had no idea what I was doing when attempting this giant curve. I remember telling myself, "It will be okay. If I can't rip the stitches out to fix any mistakes I can just cut it all up into smaller pieces and make another quilt." So I just layered the fabric, grabbed my new rotary cutter and went at it!
Yeah, and then there is free motion quilting. Setting more fear aside I scribbled all over the quilt. I'm so very glad I've improved on this. HA!
