My Second Friday Night Sew In
Make.Share.Give. I instantly fell in love with the fabric. I found the pattern for this boho chic scarf at Daisy Janie. It was kind of tedious but I enjoyed the placement of the patterns and deciding what looked good together. I discovered(as if I didn't already know) that I am not the straightest sewer and that I didn't enjoy dealing with small seam allowances but I am happy with the finished product. Thanks again Susanne for the beautiful strips you sent me.
Now this next segment is not for you excellent quilters. You may want to look away. I will understand. This picture will probably assault your eyes and sense of proportion. I was up mighty late last night completing that scarf. I had my sister in law over for dinner and she and I got chatting and had a few glasses of wine, so I didn't get started until 7:30. Also, I didn't prep my project as Heidi suggested. (notice how I am making all kinds of excuses) Well, I love the fabric Susanne gave me so much, I didn't want to waste a bit of it, so I thought I would be clever and make coasters. Apparently, one should not attempt to follow a quilt pattern at 1:00 am especially if that person is not a good straight sewer or able to deal with small seam allowances. Well, here it is:
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week. Take care. Nancy
