This was my day today!
Well, only part of it.
Okay, really --- LESS than part of it.
Because, let’s be honest – no matter WHAT you have heard about Quilters and Rembrandt or Piccaso – we DO mend.
As long as we don’t have to change the thread in the machine to do it! HA!
It only took a minute to sew up this pocket, and you would have thought that I invented the cure to something really ---well…you get it.
Sometimes it takes something so little to make someone so happy, and then you wonder why you waited so long to do it in the first place.
For one thing – it took a lot less time to do this than to stitch on a binding, a hanging sleeve, or even a label. NONE of which got done today.
But I did fix a pocket!
I also sewed a backing!
I set up with a machine that hasn’t come out to play in a while, one with a beautiful stitch and a motor that purrs. Since I was piecing a backing for a Christmas quilt out of old DEEP Christmas stash – I thought green was a good choice!
And who can resist smiling at a machine named Electro Hygiene??! Fun!
I am working on a quilt in the APQ Quilt Along!
Scraptacular by Edyta Sitar: This is one of the choices for the Go Four It Quilt Along!
You can get your own copy of the April issue of AP&Q Magazine and sew along with us! We are all posting our progress on Instagram with the hashtag #apqquiltalong. You can follow me @quiltville_bonnie.
I won’t be giving directions or sizes or number of units in my posts. You can get that in the magazine. Remember yesterday’s copyright post? I can show units and progress, I have permission to share photos, but go get your copy of the magazine for the patterns!
Because I already had a bunch of square cut and have been making 4 patches as leaders & enders, my squares vary slightly in size from Edyta's. I'm using my own measurements.

I’ve cut a bunch of triangles to put my four patches on point!
I oversize them slightly so I can trim down and square up.
This is my evening project!
