The one that hurt....

I have a confession.  When I am designing projects I never plan anything out.  I usually start cutting fabric and see where the project leads.  Sometimes I will hit a snag, but usually things go along pretty quickly.  Such was not the case with this quilt....

I started with a Brights Jelly Roll and a Say it With Words Comfort of Psalms Panel.  I am not going to lie, my lack of preparation going into this quilt, really showed.  I felt like I was hitting a snag every time I turned around.  After fighting it all day long, I had come to the point of being able to quilt it.  I was under a bit of a time crunch so I got in a hurry.  The next thing I know, I am standing in front of my husband holding my hand with a shocked look on my face saying, "Honey, I just did something bad."  That's right folks, I had just SEWED through my fingernail and finger...not just once, but 3 times!  Let me just tell hurts.  Not just kind of, really, really, really hurts.  Especially when I type...why am I typing, oh the pain and agony.....No really,  it is already healing.

With all of that being said.  As much as I struggled with this beauty creating her, I have to say, she is now one of my favorites.


  1. Ouch! Been there, done that. I was once told that the issue isn't's when. You are now a blooded quilter!

    The quilt looks great!

  2. OMG. Joyful noises I would not be making if I had just sewn thru my finger 3 different tims. Hope it's doing better now.
