My Quilting Friend brought this green fabric for me to
She set up my machine, made sure all the parts were there,
(we did not have tons of time, she understands what she is reading
and efficency counts for something!!!),
and got me going...
I had a cutting lesson on how to measure fabric to be cut...
This omnigrid is amazing!
Hello easy to measure!
And the huge cutting mat?
50% off at Joanne's last Tuesday.
So we washed all the fabrics I have and ironed some of them.
My QF (quilting friend) told me of these snapware
containers that are great to keep fabric in.
you are seeing all of the fabric for the quilt
for my goddaughter!
Actually, it's enough fabric for two quilts if I don't
blotch the cutting/sewing!
I got the supplies we needed;
in a moment of mercy
(considering all that was going on at the time)
I thought to email my friend to ask her to make
a list of all the sewing stuff (notions) I would need
to do this project.
She made a list on evernote, I downloaded evernote to my
smartphone, she emailed me the list and we were good to go!
Bonus was that most of the stuff I needed I got at least
50% off at Joanne's.
So not only did I have my
I got the
how-to-wind-a-bobbin and how-to-thread-my-machine lessons!
Picture above is my first bobbin!
I got on QF's suggestion a bobbin box and I have decided
that the word 'bobbin box' is one that should be in the
vocabulary of all hobbit-lovers as it just sounds like
it should be in a Hobbit's hole...
And after two ties on smaller squares,
I did a strait line of sewing!
Now I just have to repeat this a lot of times...
I am so excited to learn!
