Heatwave Day 2

August 2, 2006 by

To distract from the heat and the fact that I have to order school uniforms for Kindergarten (eyes welling up, lump in throat) I will show you a child’s quilt I made. It is for a school mate of the boys who has had a great sadness this summer.

Fun and easy to make. Except the backing is giving me fits. There are a couple of things that are wrong with it, so I will need to un-quilt (rip-out) all the quilting I did. First, I did not baste nearly enough. Lesson learned. Second, the batting I used is awful, squeaky and you can see through the three layers. Not good, again Lesson Learned. In the interest of full disclosure I will show you the back, please don’t laugh directly at me-go around the corner first!

    No laughing here–your quilting ability has me bowing and saying, “I’m not worthy….”
    It’s a sweet quilt and he’ll love it. You’re such a dearie.

    I love it when you quilt! And I love the outerspacey theme. Sucks about the batting, tho, I hate when stuff like that happens. And when you don’t notice until you’ve done the really hard part. Kudos to you for re-doing instead of throwing it in the corner of the closet (the Preferred Emily Method).
