While sorting stuff in the sewing room, I found the pattern I used for the flag in this little quilt . I gave that one away so I decided to make another.
I even found enough HST blocks laying around to complete the top! I loved it at this point.
I started quilting and things didn’t look quite right. Of course, I forged ahead anyway. See how my flag waves?
Yep, that’s bad. I got all done and realized when I went to put the binding on that I never put the walking foot on my machine! Good grief! Apparently, I’m not spending enough time in my sewing room!
Daughter #3 picked up this lovely backing fabric for me at a garage sale.
People always say I shouldn’t share my mistakes. But I think it gives others permission to be themselves and share their work, even if it isn’t perfect. I put this on an end table in my family room. I’ll set my coffee cup on it. It’s still useable. I value good workmanship, but things don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful or useful.
I do wish I could blame this on pain meds though…..
Have a great day!
