I am currently working on this Fresh Tradition Doll Quilt . In fact, I should be binding it right now while Jack is at school, but instead, I am sitting here like a lump. Jack was up and down all night long, and it wears me right out.
As you can see, I have some piecing problems. And I am not really sure why. Maybe it was too complicated for a beginner, maybe I am sewing incompetent, maybe I am missing some secret cutting/piecing tricks? I have soldiered onward regardless of the mistakes. Any tips, hints, tricks, etc are welcome.
(I also happen to think the pattern is a bit dodgy, since it doesn't mention the numbers for seam allowances and so forth. It leaves me doing quite a bit of unwelcome math.)
This morning Jack decided that he would work on the quilt also. "I makin' projik! 7,8,9."
"I find a square! 3, 4, 5."
Oh wait, maybe we are playing peek-a-boo! "I see you!" This was followed by "Put the camera down mommy. Down here. Right now. Put the camera down."
Aye, aye, aye. Kids!
