2015 (written 23 August 2015):
Things are winding down in the garden and I’ve spent rather too much time wondering what to do with my spare time. I’ve had it in mind for a while that I’d like to start quilting so, yesterday, my mother (who can sew) and I (who can’t) took a trip into the fabric shop. Aren’t these pretty? I’m going to make a Log Cabin quilt.
We had coffee before going home to show my father (who can sew) what we’d bought. I was amazed to discover that he’s also been thinking about quilting so it looks like this will be a team effort 🙂
My first task was to iron the fabric. It was so prettily made up for display in the shop that I felt rather sad to be taking the package to bits but you have to break a few eggs … Today I’m going to practice cutting and sewing with some scrap fabric while I wait for a ruler and cutting board to be delivered.
