My adventure in quilting has officially begun. After hoarding the fabrics I had choose for weeks I finally took the big leap and started cutting. Lucky for me I had some help Elizabeth from dontcallmebetsy was kind enough to give me some guidance and I managed to do pretty well. I would love to say everything went smoothly after that but in fact it didn't. I managed to cut up the fabric in the bottom right incorrectly. Not once, twice, but in fact 3 times! How is this even possible?! I will have to go out and snag some more fabric soon because I destroyed the half yard I bought.
I still have so much to cut but I stopped after the disaster last night. I think I might wait until I stock up on some supplies to continue. I need more fabric obviously but I also need a larger mat and a new iron.
Never fear I am NOT giving up. This entire process with all the bumps I have hit along the way has been enjoyable. I really do love working with fabrics and all the details involved really help with my sanity after spending all day at work.
Oh DUH, if you're interested in the pattern I am working on you can find it HERE! I wanted to choose a pattern that wasn't too girly since I will be giving this to my dad when it's complete. I will also be using a grey fabric in the "white" space. Can't wait to finish and show it off.
