Remember the baby quilt with the “City” fabrics?
And there it is – just.
I do hate that word when it comes to quilting.
Quilters use it when they’re trying to appear humble – “Oh, I just threw that together in an afternoon” or “I just followed the pattern” or “It didn’t take long, I just love to sew.”
People who live with quilters use it too – “Since you’re at the machine anyway, would you just fix my shirt/pants/zipper/button/thingy?” Or “Can you just make a quilt real quick for some person?”
Totally clueless people use it all the time. “I just buy my blankets at the store.” “I just don’t have time to sew, it’s so much work.” “Just do it.” (LOL, threw that last one in as a joke.)
But I digress.
So I quilted at the seams.
And this is how much I was short on the backing. I decided I could live with it. I didn’t want to trim off that quarter inch so I’m making the binding wider than I usually do. It’s the blue dot fabric in the photo.
I think this will be a cute little quilt, once I get it completed. I’m excited to work on the next one though.
And I can’t hardly wait to make my Snapshots block for May! The weekend is coming!
