I have been sewing since I was knee-high to a grasshopper...(as the country folks say). At my mother's knee, I learned to first make pillows, then doll clothes, then clothes for myself.
A few years ago, I decided that if I can sew a dress with a 5/8 seam, that I too could sew a quilt on a 1/4 inch seam.
As my blog bears evidence, I have produced many a quilt...but never one cut on the bias.
Faithful readers may remember the post where I lamented this quilt. A few weeks ago, I took it to one of my favorite quilt shops and learned that I was reading my ruler incorrectly. After a quick tutorial and a few hours of sewing....
I have so many mistakes cutting this puppy out that I have to redesign the entire quilt top...(the country folks also say that necessity is the birthplace of invention). I will post the finished top...when it's finished (insert shifty eyes here).
To celebrate my new quilting-ruler knowledge a contest...
