Pearl and I are having lots of fun. I made a stop at my local quilt shop. I guess I was a bit drunk with power, because I managed to convince myself that now was the time to make a quilt. I have been shoving this notion to the back of my brain for a couple of years now. After bringing home all my supplies, it occurred to me that it would be a good idea to start with something a little smaller. I found a pattern for a table runner on Moda's website and pieced this together with scraps that were hanging out with nowhere else to go.
My biggest struggle was with evenness. The fabric pulled as I was machine quilting. I took the plunge and purchased a walking foot. (a trip, that despite telling myself it would only be for the foot, ended with me buying fabric for a lap quilt as well)
I found this great tutorial on binding that helped out a lot too.
