I decided that Iíd like to make a lap quilt for my Mum. I chose a paper-pieced block that looked to be well within my capabilities, but Iím really struggling! Do you ever have a project that just seems to be jinxed? Anything I could do wrong I have: sewing the fabric on the wrong way round, getting the fabric doubled over, cutting off the wrong piece of paper..... at one point the needle even fell out of the sewing machine! Each block has 4 sections: I got 2 sections together and they wouldnít line up. Three days and I havenít even completed one block! And there are 30 in the quilt.... If I donít manage to get the first one completed today, itís back to the drawing board.
