This quilting thing is complicated!
What is up with how complicated quilting is? I”m not even piecing the top of this woobie and I am already running into design issues. How do I quilt this sucker? My mom suggested using machine stitched straight lines and then adding handstitched rockets inbetween. I’ve been drawing different layouts, but it either looks to sparse or if it looks good, it will be the next ice age before I finish hand quilting this woobie and the poor kid will be a grandfather.
After work today, I am going to stop by the City Quilter for advice and supplies. I just found out this woobie will be needed soon — fingers crossed — so I have to get cracking this weekend. I need matching thread, cotton batting, and something called “Magic Sizing” (according to my mom this is a quilting necessity).
I know, I know… you’re shaking your head at my too ambitious plans. But we’ll see. Never say never. Here’s a stencil I found for a rocket:
Wish me luck tonight and this weekend! Stay tuned for a post about Day 3 of my moulage class w/ Kenneth King.
