I thought my project would be finished so I would be showing you but I also thought I could read a pattern. I was so busy watching TV that I forgot to reverse half of the chevron rectangles! Hmmmm…I am not a beginner but you’d think so. That mistake required 16 additional squares from 4 different fabrics – nope – not enough fabric. But did I panic? No. I remembered what Gwen Marston said about what she learned from antique quilts. There was never one made without some odd pieces thrown in so some of my chevrons don’t exactly match. It’s called artistic license. Project coming soon, unless I make another mistake.
On our day out last week Connie and I stopped at a thrift store so I could look for shirts and I found this treasure for $4.99. It is 100% wool and measures 5′ x 7′. It’s even light colored to match Telly’s hair so when it gets too dirty to clean, I will simply burn it out in the grove. How could I possible go wrong for $5? Plus I think I’m beginning to make a believer out of Connie, who generally likes to pay full retail – ha!! Just teasing, Connie!
