Small Project Therapy

I wasted several hours last weekend quilting one of the baby quilts, and then ripping out the stitches because it looked so awful. I still have about half of it to rip, so I am consoling myself with some small projects. This is for my niece. She likes purple.
This is for a gal from work who is home recovering from surgery. She's the kind who will help no matter how busy she is. We miss her!

This is for a friend who is a marvelous musician.


I discovered the most amazing thing! If you leave your fabric unattended for a while it grows new selvedges. That's the only way I can explain the fact that I have any selvedges at all here at home. I really thought I had cut them all off for Jodie and sent them off some time ago. And look! Some new ones appeared.
Maybe tonight I'll put in a good movie and sit down with my ripper and take out the rest of the bad quilting so I can start over.

I like all your small projects, Diana. They are so pretty. Your friends will be so pleased with your work. I'm sorry to hear the quilting didn't turn out as you had hoped. I hope it goes better next time around.

What a shame you had to rip out the stitches, I am sure it wasnt that awful.
I really like your new projects.
