What's in a name...
When I started on this journey of quilting, I decided that I would try all methods.
No prior judgments allowed.
No "I don't think I'd enjoy that".
Learn new things and try them all.
Are you chuckling or shaking your head yet? Let me introduce you to "Flying High"--the one and only machine applique quilt I will ever make. Maybe it should be "Flying High because it's done"?
And if I didn't have a grandson who has been so patiently waiting, I probably would not have finished.
Maybe it was part of the method. When I first try something, I stick with the directions and rarely deviate. Perhaps I should have reduced some of the layers in this one. I did very little quilting, because I felt that some sections were "stiff".
I am happy that Grandpa managed to create a picture with Henry as the astronaut captain. So we finished this one and move on to the next.
Any of you have a "boy, am I glad this one's done?"
