Quilt madness under way!
I've got a big sewing project to do -- a large art quilt! It is not a quilt in the traditional form, but will be put together using other means besides machine stitching, which is exciting to me! Here is the initial sketch for one panel, which my great hubby helped me with (he's a better at drawing artist than me).
This process always takes time, which is annoying, because I always want to get straight to sewing. But these are necessary steps that will ensure that everything fits closely in the end. I thank my dad, Frank, for showing me how to sketch out a plan, and for my mother, Alice, for teaching me to sew. I'll really need those skills to put this thing together!
