Brain Freeze

 I finally finished sewing down all the pieced sections on my mini quilt and then promptly proceeded to goof it up. For some reason I can't explain I sewed the binding on before I had made the quilt sandwich. It took some adjusting but I managed to figure out how to work around the problem.




Things got even goofier when I tried to follow the directions for the sleeve on the back that holds the quilt on the little frame.


The designer gives a very vague description of what has to happen and for a non-sewer like me it took a lot of hits or misses until I finally figured out what should be going on. That's as far as I got. I had used up all my brain power for the day. It doesn't take much anymore.

  1. You got a lot further than I would've gotten. It does look very nice though. I love the pattern.

  3. Awwwwwwwww. :-( Some days are like that. The quilted front is very pretty though. You can feel good about THAT part, at least.

  4. It really is pretty. When I read the title of your post though, I confess all I could think of was a frozen margarita! Which, by the way, I could go for right now at 9 a.m.!!!

  5. You're doing much better than I am. It would be down right dangerous for me to try and use my sewing machine right now. I'm way to distracted.

  9. Some days are like that, but at least you didn't chop it up like a friend of mine did when she was having a bad sewing day!

  10. I think it looks fantastic. I seem to have even less brain power lately, maybe the weird warm weather is sucking it out of me, that or my cold of three weeks.
