pulling weeds, going for hikes,
enjoying the flowers
and a trip to the zoo
all take me away from sewing. I'm fine with that.
I'm glad I took a photo of my peonies a couple of days ago because today they are getting washed away in the rain.
The last time I was working on my quilt I was very excited about almost finishing. I only had the 10" borders left to add. So I kept working late into the night trying to finish the piecing. I really need a door on my sewing room so I can lock it at a certain time of night. Seriously, when I work too late I always make a mistake. Usually just something silly and corrected with a rip of some stitches. This time it was a little trickier to fix. Instead of cutting my miter at 45 degrees I cut one of them with the 60 degree measure.
Now I could have easily patched in a piece to fill the gap, and I considered that option. But, it seems to me I've put a lot of time and fabric into this quilt and didn't want to have a patch where there shouldn't be one.
I decided to order more fabric. After a week I received an email notifying me they didn't have enough of this fabric left. I was glad I had used so many fabrics in the quilt all along. Using something different for part of border isn't even noticeable. I think the fabric I ordered looks good.
It finally came last Friday but haven't had a chance to work on it until today. Today is raining so a perfect day to sew. All four mitered corners look perfect now, well except for needing a good pressing.
Off to work on my Jinny Beyer quilt and the red work quilt for the afternoon. Hope you are enjoying your day.
Have a creative day
