One thing that I've had some trouble with is turning corners when facing my quilts. When binding them? No problemo. But facing? mucho problemo.
When Charlotte saw one of my quilts, she cringed and said, "Remind me to tell you about the video that I saw on facings!" Then she showed me her quilt, with corners so sharp I might cut myself. oh my.
This is one of my corners, probably the worst on this particular quilt:
But it was oh, so, worth it! Here is the new facing. Look at that corner! It's as sharp as Charlotte's!
Everything seems to be a work in progress. Even when I've declared it "finished!"
And on that, I am hopeful that I will sew...if I can get my desk under control. I had my housekeeper dust the desk for me, once I'd taken everything off of it. I've been trying to cull through the stuff, to organize. It's a job that took 12 hours on Monday, 3 hours yesterday, and will swallow up probably at least another 3-6 hours. oh well. It will be worth it, right? Doing it right usually is...
Happy Spring Cleaning! oh my. oh. my. goodness.
