So, my girls are doing amazingly well with their mini quilts.
And remember, I am NOT a quilter.
Well, in my heart, I WANT to be a quilter.
But other than a few basic quilt tops, and some really simple
almost-quilts where I either tied, or embroidered them,
I have never completed an entire quilt.
I have never taken a quilt class, even though I want to do so.
All of which would probably, and rightfully, beg the question,
"Why, pray tell, my dear Goosegirl, did you choose to have your daughters
make charm pack quilts as one of their summer projects? Hmmmm?"
Well, like I have told one of my quilting crushes, Monica Solorio-Snow,
aka The Happy Zombie, I really, really want to learn
to quilt. So maybe by having my girls work on these, I can kind
of problem solve and get some ideas before I try my own.
So, I guess that makes them guinea pigs, and me the evil scientist....
I am probably telling them everything wrong.
And anyone who is a REAL QUILTER is probably rolling on the floor at the thought
of the gross misinformation I am feeding my happy guinea pigs, er.....daughters.
Now, you make think to yourself,
"Sivje, why don't you just take a class, or even read a book
Well, I have no good answer for that one!
But Ahnalin has DEFINITELY caught the quilting bug, and bad!
She has raced through her quilt and now the only thing left to do is
the actual "quilting". India has a few more steps for hers, but
she is not far behind.
And Ahnalin wants to know what to do to finish her quilt.
Um.... well...... I have NO CLUE what to tell her!
So, please, I beg of you....
what do we do next?????
I got the kind of cotton batting that must be quilted because my local store did not
have the cheapy polyester batting that you can just tie.
So, please. Help a crazy mama out.
What should we do next?
