I have use approximately 5 yards of fabric over the past couple of weeks. I have signed up for block exchanges so I have purchased a couple of yards for this. I am still about 3/4 full on my tote and the goal was to be at 1/2. I am confident I will get there.
Speaking of confidence, I am machine quilting this weekend. I started with a table topper as practice, see? I have only quilted small projects and borders so far. The machine is threaded properly, and I remembered to drop the feed dogs.
Yea! After 2 hours of quilting my Road to the White house is nearly completed. I have 2 pucker/pleated areas on the back but that is ok, no photo please. It is my first try. I have 4 hours in the basting, remember!! And it still needed more. So today I am pinning the edges to finish. I am going to be the queen of stipplilng because I really like it. Watch the tops on my wip and ufo fly over to the completed pile. I still love hand quilting but that will be for special quilts. I am developing arthritis in my fingers so I am trying to not make it worse and yarn things can but I still do them a little at a time.
So I am singing a little song from the play, "The Sound of Music", if you know it sing along:
I have confidence in confidence alone!
Besides Which you see I have confidence In me!!!!!!!!!!!!
