I am not a quilter...so, getting a new quilt design twice a week, and learning all those exciting quilt techniques seemed like A GREAT IDEA...
And, hey -- it could also be a nice sewing/learning experience for Lilly!!
|Lilly DID, in fact, sew this very first Splendid Sampler block...(see how young she was??)|
|As you call, from the very beginning, LP immediately (and gleefully) started making TWO versions of each block design.|
|And Sandy kept up with the twice-weekly-designs as well, never failing to bring a Sew and Tell to TMBC|
|I started off strong...|
|But, sadly, at the time, I was too fat to do that much sewing...|
|HONESTLY...I look back at these pictures, and ALL I SEE IS FAT RITA...|
|By the time the Splendid Sampler was over -- LP had two finished quilts, and Sandy also completed her quilt. But I only had about 50 blocks...I tried to figure out how I could use these blocks to make a quilt...ugh...|
THEN -- I GOT A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS.....
|Because LP is a VERY PERSNICKETY quilter -- after completing TWO of those monster quilts --she had about 40 blocks that were REJECTS...!! Which she gifted to me...and my hopes soared that I might actually make a quilt..!!|
|Then, the equally-as-persknickety- Sandy, also gifted me HER Splendid Sampler rejected blocks...|
|Don't forget, Lilly sewed two blocks altogether...|
