    Drool makes fabric bleed.. stop that well.. I worked on this project for my secret pal today.. and well.. it doesn't like me... my geese are all stretchy and puckery and I cut the outer pieces the wrong size by 1/4" and I just don't care so the rest are also going to get cut 1/4" smaller haha. I can make the outer shell tonight but can't make the lining until I wash it cause it's batik and I don't want it to bleed. Mom is coming to entertain me tomorrow so I might recruit her into being a worker elf, a cutting elf at least. or maybe I'll let her sew with my bumper and let her see how fun auto-pilot is when you don't have to make sure it's lined up with the edge of your presser foot.. maybe she'll use one then Anyways, in case anyone cares here's what I made tonight (this makes a 15.25x12" rectangle if you cut incorrectly like I do.. so .. you know.. if you cut it in a different way you could make it into a swap block.. Also the original pattern, the blue that's around the geese were supposed to be the same color as the dark border but bleh to that. have fun

    if only I could be so lucky to make such a pretty block. I see tiny triangles and I... run. I am looking for the bumps. I have tried to iron those out with horrible luck I might add. Only way to solve that is to open up that seam press while open then resew. Dont try spray starch unless you want to make them ten times more bumpy .. no never tried that hear. or steam, yeah never tried that here. WHAT I DID DISCOVER is how to finally get rid of those stupid fold lines that are showing up all over in the fabric I get. I take a damp paper towel and lay it over the fabric and then put the hot iron on top til the paper is dry and woala its now an unwrinkled fabric. i was not getting out spray of any kind after those lumpy experiences. (sorry to those who got them). AND its a lesson not a mistake Anastasia. thats all. quilting itself takes a lot of that out or distracts the eye anyways so it doesnt show (as much).. especially if a non quilter looks at it. We just are super hard on ourselves right guys? say yes please

    ok off to start sewing, its 6:14 and its MY GREAT DAY, company coming tonight (oh joy) and then my daughter and her boy are coming for four days from Eugene, OR and will want tons of attention so not sure how much sewing I can do while they are here.. oh go wine tasting honest its fun... oops sorry the door hit you, oh oh go zip lining and see those caverns its great! oh here is some money go get picnic stuff and hike and swim up at the lake.. anyone see a theme here? any other good ideas? go play? let momma play too ? I cant keep up with 21 yr old energy and have no desire to try either let the games begin!

    Hehe it is a cute block and I have no desires to open it up and fix it. It'll do as is.. hehe.. once I put the batting in where I forgot to put it in, I'll quilt it down and no one will ever know The fabric is called Pegasus by NNA for Fabric Visions, Inc. I have a ton of it, I'll send you a yard or two. I decided it must have been one of those bags of fabric I found at Unique Thrift store for $3. But I honestly have a TON. But it is a stinkin cute pattern and a stinkin cute fabric.

    Also, I'm coming to visit too Elisabrat... you can send me away to play too
