QOD Tiny acts of bravery....and leaps of faith
In order to advance in our quilting avocations, sometimes we just have to press forward and take the results on faith. Hard to do sometimes, when the test material is a top you've put a lot of work and/or money into. I find it's necessary, however, or we never grow in the quilting sense. Today I took a leap of faith because I wanted the baby quilt I am making my first great grandchild to NOT have binding on it. I decided to birth my first quilt. I'm quite pleased with the results, and it won't be my last one. Not perfect. Passable. My next tiny act of bravery shall be to do some machine quilting on it with a double needle over the block seams and edges, for durability. I also did my first tea dying on some of the background fabric.
Want to share some projects in which you decided to just jump in? OK Kate, this is the second project I've done with quilt blocks I made for this year's lotta. Talk about enabling. Now I need to make three more of Dutchman's Puzzle and Roberta's Jewels since they found their way into a quilt.
Here she is, Sandwiched, birthed and pressed, ready to start quilting.
