Let’s Get Started

Gather your fabrics and meet me on March 12th for the first block. I’ll be choosing  about 2 yards of background fabrics and 8 fat quarters to begin. Since I’m planning to make some smaller projects rather than a large quilt, I’ll be needing more but then I’ll be letting you know about that at the end of each segment. I’ll be back in a few days to show you what fabrics I have in mind.

What I Learned Today:

  1. Sometimes even the best laid plans don’t work. I’m referring to my work on our quilt show committee.
  2. I am not easily discouraged but I am getting tired.
  3. The year is going by very quickly.

Question: What items do you think of when you think of sewing or quilting? For me, it’s all about the fabric.

Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

Karen, Tu-Na Quilts

    I’m curious to see what the group has cooked up for the QAL! When it comes to what items I think of when it comes to sewing or quilting, it’s a close call between fabric and design. It depends on the project. Oh, and the hum of my machine 🙂
