I was digging through a few boxes of stuff that I pulled out of our storage unit yesterday and came across a quilt top that I made. THE very very very first one I made. Now that I look at it, it looks AWFUL. Its only a bunch of squares that I cut up from fabric that I made my husband some shirts with and some that I made Scrub Uniform tops for me when I was working.
I can remember sitting in my little sewing room, and I mean little. Most peoples bathrooms are bigger then that little room was...in fact an outhouse isnt too much smaller then it was. But it did have windows on on the left wall facing my neighbors back yard and one on the wall facing out into my backyard and a closet not bigger then a refrigerator but it did have built in shelves inside it. I was BRAND new at sewing anything. Well anyways, here is a picture of the block quilt I made, notice the seams don't match? My husband said that I should put a 4 inch border all around it, put a backing on it and he will use it to cover up in his recliner. I was going to cut it up and make it into an I Spy quilt and he flat out told me no that it was a "souvenier" from my beginning sewing days. Gotta love the man. :)
Notice how my seams were very uneven? Man good thing I don't sew like that anymore.
Nasty uneven seams. Haha..talk about a blooper!!!
