Five hours later......

What should have taken an hour has taken five! I am more frustrated with sewing than I have EVER been.  I thought heavy duty thread was a great idea, and it was for the first six or so pieces.  Then my machine decided it HATED heavy duty thread and jammed at least three times on EVERY appliqued piece after that. Do you see those fingers! I am not exaggerating! Incredible.  And with those jams was wasted thread, so that took a trip to Joanne's which is 15 miles from my house.  I love the look of this quilt, but I almost broke down, I mean emotional, several times today. Soooooo frustrating! Three spools of thread and this is what is left, I honestly prayed that I wouldn't run out!


  1. Super cute!! Sorry it took so long! How frustrating! But it turned out darling!

  2. This is darling! What a clever idea. The quilting make it look like it's hand drawn. I'm sorry you were frustrated, but it's worth it in the end!
