Sure. I can bust one out in my sleep.
But I have never attempted a quilt.
I planned to.
Even bought the fabric.
(Which has since been used for other projects.)
But chickened out.
I have a misconception that all quilts
are detailed and fussy.
Two words that are not in my vocabulary.
But when I saw this quilt that all changed.
It didn't change enough though.
I chickened out again.
So early this morning as I was reading Kelly's blog
(who by the way is having a really fun giveaway)
I came across Old Red Barn Co.'s Quilt Along.
Basically the instructions on how to make my
dream quilt step by baby step.
grabbed my assistant and her Bumbo,
changed the blade in my rotary cutter,
and somehow managed to cut all of the strips
before the rest of the family woke up.
Look at this yumminess.
In a little over a month,
I too, will be a quilter.
Want to join me?
There is plenty of time!
Oh, and when all is said and done,
I will no only have a newfound skill,
but a chance to win a crazy sewing machine worth over $1,000.
Will I win?
If I don't, I'll just curl up in my new quilt and give love to my
simple sewing machine that helped make it.
I'm cool with that.
