Sewing and Writing

Posted by J on Sunday, April 25, 2010. Filed under: , ,

I started my jean quilt today (something that's been on my "to do list" for a really long time)...well yesterday really. I started cutting the pieces out and it too forever because I didn't really know what I was doing. Today was much better, I got through the rest of the jeans and counted my squares: 84. Way too many! I have a whole stack left over, which I'm pretty happy about because I am not planning some pot holders, or pillow covers, or something.

Anyway. The quilt. I laid it all out, fussed with it a bit, and it looks okay to me. So now I gotta pin it together and sew it. That's the part I'm afraid of. I'm hoping to have the top done by the end of the week and maybe next week I can do the backing, binding, and actual quilting. I still don't really know what I'm doing but I'm happy to be doing something.

My first article for Demand Studios got rejected, but the editor was really nice about it and told me not to get discouraged; so we'll see what happens with the next one that is being edited right now.
