I have a confession. When I am designing projects I never plan anything out. I usually start cutting fabric and see where the project leads. Sometimes I will hit a snag, but usually things go along pretty quickly. Such was not the case with this quilt….
I started with a Brights Jelly Roll and a Say it With Words Comfort of Psalms Panel. I am not going to lie, my lack of preparation going into this quilt, really showed. I felt like I was hitting a snag every time I turned around. After fighting it all day long, I had come to the point of being able to quilt it. I was under a bit of a time crunch so I got in a hurry. The next thing I know, I am standing in front of my husband holding my hand with a shocked look on my face saying, “Honey, I just did something bad.” That’s right folks, I had just SEWED through my fingernail and finger…not just once, but 3 times! Let me just tell you…it hurts. Not just kind of, either…it really, really, really hurts. Especially when I type…why am I typing, oh the pain and agony…..No really, it is already healing.
With all of that being said. As much as I struggled with this beauty creating her, I have to say, she is now one of my favorites.
