Sewing and Quilt Notes
So my original plan on Sunday was to work on the shirt I cut out about two weeks ago. I got all the way through step 2 (see, there are pre-gathers!), and saw that I hadn't read the notions list, and therefore didn't have single fold bias tape. So that didn't last very long.
Since I'd gone through all the trouble of dragging the sewing machine out, I figured I had to try to do something else. So I assembled the branch template I'd made from a picture online (had to blow it up fairly large), and cut that out, and sewed it to the quilt back I'd made ages ago. I even got the backing and batting pinned on. So now I just have figure out how I'm going to quilt it. But it's nice to have it so much further along.
