The Next Quilt

A little bit ago I had told you that I was ready to get started on a new quilt and was going to cut into this..Rambling Rose from Moda.

Rambling-Rose-1
It was a quilt both Kelli and I had a little fight over.  We both wanted to sew it…I won!!

Well last time Kelli was home she said, “Mom, can I at least pet the fabric?”  Well this was her way of trying to get the quilt away from me.  I said no…then she said, “I’ll cut it out for you.”  Then I quickly said, “YES!!”  I don’t hate cutting out quilts but I can honestly say I’d rather do about anything else….Kelli, she loves cutting out quilts.  She loves all the organizing and fabric petting and putting things in piles and counting..me not so much.  So when she offered to cut it out for me, no way was I going to turn her down.

Then she started taunting me saying look…I have your jelly rolls…

Jellyrolls-1

Then she said..”Look mom, I am doing the fun part…I am opening your jelly rolls.”

Jellyrolls-2

Then she said, “I get to see all the fabrics first..I get to pet them first.”  -  Yes I know she’s a little crazy.  She gets it from me.

Jellyrolls-3

The she was finally counting and organizing…something she loves and she quit taunting me.

Jellyrolls-4
So any bets on at whose house the fabric is at..Kelli’s or mine??

The answer…MINE.  She could taunt me all she wanted…this fabric is staying at my house because I am sewing this quilt.  No taunting by Kelli is going to stop me…and she can’t trick me out of it either.

So what’s your least part of making a quilt…honestly,  if I don’t count writing a pattern, it’s cutting the quilt out for me.  For Kelli, she says putting on the borders and piecing the backing are the least favorite for her.  It’s lucky for us that each of us like opposite parts of the process.  Rarely is a quilt only done by me or only by her…  Watch for more progress on this quilt soon-I hope…otherwise Kelli will be back and trying to snitch this fabric from me again.

I’ve said time and time again that organization just isn’t my strong suit.  I sometimes think it’s the product of having too many irons in the fire.  Time and time again I’ve had to apologize for not being on top of things and this is another of those times.

As I was going through my email inbox today….I mean all the way through it…down to the very-very bottom.  I only do this a couple times a year-even though I know I should do it more often.  I found a few notes that I should have answered sooner.  I found a few things that were buried in the spam…and I found this…
