Can I get a Woot Woot!?
1. Make sure you have enough fabric before just jumping in and starting. I made my first block using clearance fabric before I thought through making the whole blanket, duh!
2. Make sure you have enough batting so you don’t cause unnecessary delays. I had a two week lag after making the top before I could baste & quilt, Oi!
3. Carefully wind your bobbin to reduce the chance of it tangling and breaking. I had to cut off almost half the thread on the bobbin because it got all tangled…such a waste of good thread.
4. Don’t oil your machine halfway through quilting…I didn’t realize it would get on the blanket as I smushed, pulled and finagled the blanket through the throat. Thankfully Hubby helped me get that out!
So now here’s the big reveal:
I added the label right before bed last night…I just love the name!!
It still needs a good bath to wash out all the quilt markings and then the only thing left to do is decide what I’m going to do with it…do I ‘gift’ it or sell it…hmmm, decisions decisions 😀
