I recently have discovered my inner Betty. I’m sure there is a lot more of her that I haven’t discovered, but hopefully I have lots more time to explore this new found girl. I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas and my mom and dad delivered. I’ve never been a seamstress. When I was growing up I had a grandma that was wonderful with a sewing machine and made quilts and anything else you wanted. I wish I had been more interested in sewing back then and maybe I’d be making all the stuff I’m seeing on Pinterest, damn you Pinterest.
Anyways, yesterday I made my very first quilt block. I’m not sure I’ll even put it in my first quilt, but at least I know I am capable of making one and it looks like what its supposed to look like. I’m doing a down step zig zag pattern for my first quilt and honestly, I know absolutely nothing about making a quilt. Trial by fire is usually my way. I’ll make posts about my progress here. Wish me luck!
