I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
During the week I made a start on my first quilt top. Under the watchful eye of a craft buddy I learnt to how cut my squares properly. I duly noted the exacting methods - the right angles, the straight lines and the precise measurements.
Of course as soon as she had left the premises, I started taking liberties. (Warning: real quilters are advised to turn away now.) I stacked piles of fabric up and frantically sawed through their ample layers with my rotary cutter.
Predictably there were casualties. But it was all for the greater good. More squares; less time. See? All good.
So, this week I am going to begin piecing together the quilt top (with a selection of less-than-squared squares).
Oh hang on, it appears I already have. It seems there has been a bit of sewing prior to the finish of the cutting. Just a teensy bit (... but I think I got away with it). OK, I admit I did get a tad impatient with all those squares and wandered off to the sewing machine in the middle of it all. Talk about attention deficit craft.
So today its back to the cutting board and the squares. Maybe ...
Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space today (or to join in), head over here.
