So… I started sewing the “eyes” for my Double Wedding Ring quilt…those curves making me a tad nervous. But I found out it isn’t so difficult as I imagined.
Just pin carefully and sew carefully and ta-da! They aren’t perfect, but by the time I finish 194 curves for the “eyes” plus 168 more curves for the centers…(whoa!!) I should be better at it by then don’t you think?
So far the pieces are matching up so I’m not feeling exasperated and frustrated. That’s what I worried about the most.
Instead I’m having fun!
Two more sprig blocks are finished.
I’m in the middle of reading the book “Killing Lincoln” by Bill O’Reilly and having a hard time putting it down. Learning things about our past that I never knew before. History wasn’t my favorite class in school and I struggled through those text books…but lately I find myself enjoying a little bit of history. Other good ones are “1776” by David McCullough, and “Destiny of the Republic” by Candice Millard.
Now I’m going over to link up with “Whatcha Reading Tuesday”.
