Did you know that I've been having a sewing slump lately? Maybe you could tell cause I haven't been posting much about my sewing. Over the weekend I figured out one reason. It's this Origin Quilt. The Sewful Sisters decided to do a quilt using charm packs. Okay. Sounds good. Until I started trying to sew it. Just look at what a mess this is! Yuk! Just look at those sides not meeting up!
The problem is that the yellow and white squares are cut too small because they were cut from the 5" charm squares to match up with the triangle square. Well, no wonder I didn't want to work on this!
So we had a Sewful Sister's meeting last night and guess what? Other people had sewn their block and they were all even and looking great. (Yikes the problem really is me!) So they, being the nice people that quilters are, help me to sew a much smaller seam than 1/4. And I actually started having fun.
One more picture - just for the fun of it.
I really can't wait to get home and start sewing! See that sewing slump is gone.
I've always loved sewing. I remember being about 4 sitting on floor hand stitching doll dresses, while my mother sewed on her sewing machine. I couldn't wait to be big enough to use the sewing machine! Now I work full time and try to sew daily, but other fun stuff gets in the way. You know, like swimming and camping. Sometimes reading or watching movies. Grandkids, BBQ's, walking the dogs. You get the picture.
