I.love.making.quilts. I just do. I can't help it.
I love picking all the fabrics.
I love cutting all the pieces.
I love building the blocks.
I love pressing the seams.
I love perfectly nesting seams and clean points (when they happen ... 'cause they don't always ... happen, that is).
I love it when a quilt top is all put together.
I love pin basting.
That is a total lie.
I reeeeally don't like that part at.all!
And yes I use a pink tupperware for my basting pins ... ;)
I love top-stitching.
Especially my true love grid-on-point ... people, you simply cannot argue with a classic.
I love binding ...
hmmmm ... no, that was another fib ...
I TOLERATE binding,
... when there's something good on tv.
But I FOR SURE FOR SURE love washing and drying a quilt for the first time to magically turn it into a family heirloom - all puckered & soft & loved.
Making things with fabric & thread.
That's what I love.
Oh and chocolate.
Can't forget about chocolate.
