You may remember this couple?
They’re having a baby. A boy. In May!
Isn’t that exciting???!!!!
So I get to make a quilt.
I love to pick out fabric from my shelves. Quilters call it a “fabric pull”, which means we pull out whatever we think might work in a quilt and audition it with other fabric. Decisions are made. Fabric is ironed. Then cut.
I love to cut fabric. That’s my favorite part of putting a quilt together.
I cut 448 little white squares, 448 triangles and 56 little print squares.
Then I sewed. I listened to Gillian Welch cd’s. I hummed. My sewing machine hummed.
Life was good.
We’re lucky we didn’t lose any more trees.
I’m lucky to have plenty of fabric, thread and a brand new iron, the kind that doesn’t shut itself off every 8 minutes. I opened every box of every style iron in Walmart to read the instructions until I found an iron that shut itself off in one whole hour.
I wish they wouldn’t shut themselves off at all. Is it a law or something?
