I'm getting discouraged! I have been working on the border of the quilt below. Yes, it's the same baby clothes quilt I started ages ago. I had to get more clothing from the little girl's mother for border fabric (the "main" border will be scrappy/piano key.) This meant a lot of stabilizing of the knit fabric!! So, slow going.
So, here is my problem. I made a foundation strip of muslin for the border. I have my "piano keys" cut. My main issue is that when sewing my pieces onto the muslin strip, I can't see the guides that keep my stitching straight! So, there has been quite a bit of ripping. I guess maybe I should get a ruler and mark EVERY strip back at 1/4"? I suppose that's what I should do until I can sew straight, but ugh...
I guess I just needed to vent frustrations!
Also frustrated that my trusty seam ripper is missing!! Now I know it to be my most used tool. Fortunately I have some tiny, very sharp scissors, but I hope the ripper turns up! I may have to make it into a necklace! Lol.
