OK I was asked to write a post about quilting. 

 

If you want to quilt, here's what you do:

 

1- Buy/get a machine

 

2- Get a book from the library and do what it says

 

There ya go!!! hahahaahahahaha

 

But really, I am NO expert and you really need step-by-step instructions. I'm sure there are also some good videos out there. 

 

The quilt I'm working on now is one from a library book I got. I fell in love with the rainbow colors. I went to Joann Fabric and bought the fabric. It involves a lot of strips so it took me awhile to cut them. Then I had to sew them all. Then cut THOSE strips into squares, and now it's like a puzzle- I have to put in the formation I like. Take a picture, then sew. 

 

GOOD LUCK! I am sure this wasn't helpful at all. HA!

Hi- on any normal weekend this would be fine but this is Memorial Day weekend as you probably know, and we are going to the beach. So I won't be able to moderate as much as you'd like. I will try, but I recommend maybe switching it to another weekend.
