Meet my new best friend.
I’m not sure what her name is but she thinks it might be Crap since that’s what I yell right before I grab her. She can’t understand why I’m so angry with her – she didn’t make the error. She’s just coming to the rescue. But, dang… she’s getting too much use lately!
Why? This stealth project that I’m working on? It has (wait… let me count…) a gazillion points that need to be matched!
Now normally, I go by the theory of “good enough” – It’s a blanket after all. But this quilt will be seen by more than just my family and I’m letting my perfectionist tendencies get the best of me. Apparently I missed the class entitled “Matching Points 101″. I must have also slept through “The Perfect Quarter Inch Seam Allowance” class also because if I had a perfect 1/4″ seam allowance those stinking points would match up and I wouldn’t have to use Crap so often.
Even though she’s my new BFF, she’s not much fun. Last night I said to her in frustration, “Let’s go drown our sorrows in a pitcher of milkshakes or Margaritas.” And she was all like “No…. look how skinny I am fatty. Now quit talking to inanimate objects and keep sewing those rows together!”
Here’s another sneak peak at the wacky colors in the stealth quilt top.
