Today I got the fine machine needles I needed at Jo-Ann’s. Tomorrow I am going to start ironing my chiffon with starch – I think I will try the idea of completely immersing it into starch and then ironing it while it is still wet. Then I will make this top for Layla. I am also going to start Layla on cutting some squares of scraps and sewing them together, so she can get the hang of it. She is pretty excited – I told her no matter what, we will figure out how to make a little quilt of what she sews together.
I’ve been working on so many sewing projects that are not quilting, and quilting is truly my first love, so I think that after this top is made, I will work on a couple of my UFO quilt tops. And then I want to do some paper piecing, because I have never done it before. Saw a tweet on this great tutorial for paper piecing at Pieced Brain- you should it check out!
Going to bed early so I can get an early start!
