i decided to try to make the squirm a quilt for his upcoming birthday. he currently loves elephants (efies) and i couldn’t find anything that cute out there that didn’t cost a million dollars. so i picked some fabrics and a cool color scheme (black, white and red). it is true that i don’t really know anything about quilting, but i think that if i keep it relatively simple i can get it to work out.
i guess my biggest worry, beyond totally screwing up and wasting all this super cool fabric, is that i won’t be able to get the bulk of the quilt into my rinky dink sewing maching in order to quilt the center sections. if all else fails, i can always quilt those sections by hand.
i was telling my mom about the project over lunch and her confidence in me was inspiring. she suggested i sign and date it, so that when the suirm passes it down to his kids, they will know who made it and when.
my box of fabric just came, and good thing i was outside stalking the ups man, because he tried to deliver it to the people across the street! fotunately i was able to rescue it before it got sent back to the store!
so, expect progress reports!
