I like to sew. I like to quilt. I don't like to bind quilts. I tried to learn how to bind from YouTube and the directions weren't too clear, but I did it, and it turned out alright. There's something I like about quilting that drives others crazy: mistakes. In the first quilt I made with my oldest sister Sarah, I can see places where my seams don't line up perfectly and I know that's because I wanted to read the new Harry Potter book more than I wanted to sew at the moment. I think the mistakes are fun to remember. This quilt was SOOO easy since I just bought a jelly roll of precut strips, but figuring out that binding was a mess . . . and if you look hard, you can see it, but I love it! I love that someday I can show this to my mini's and say, "This is where I learned to bind. Can you tell!?!?!" And then we'll laugh and eat popcorn.
|Somehow or another, this "throw" ended up being massive. Amen.|
