I Have 2 Fat Quarters

| 1 Comment

I got behind this week.  I made 2 projects, each with 2 fat quarters this week.  One was an epic fail, so let's start with the good one.


I made 4 finger hot pads.  I feel like I am always burning my fingers on hot pots.  These should help out a lot.  Super Useful!



I used this tutorial from Crafty Asian Girl.  I followed it - no modifications.  It was simple and satisfying.  However, the bias tape and I had some words.  I want to make this again, but this time without the bias tape.  



I did not need 2 full fat quarters.  These easily can be made from scraps.  I decided to make 4, so that I wouldn't have as many scraps. I found some bias tape in my drawer that didn't match; I found scraps of batting in the basement, and I found way too much insul-bright downstairs too.  This one requires much more than just fat quarters, but really everything was scraps. I ended up using a 90 needle as the quilt sandwich was so thick.  Quality tutorial.


Scraps: Yes

Tears - No

Blood - No

Confusion - No



Earlier in the week I set out to make a Book Bag for my daughter, and I was planning on making one for myself.  I only made one.  I took very few pictures.



I put in a ribbon book mark,  I used sparkly webbing for the handles, and she wanted the beehive button for the closure.  Yes, I used 2 fat quarters.  Now, I found a tutorial online.  It was the worst tutorial I have ever used BY FAR.  It took me 3 hours to get to the giving up point (and no pieces put together).  I started again the next morning and completed it my way.  I will not link the tutorial here because it was so bad.  I'm thinking of writing my own tutorial.  Anyone interested?  Epic Fail.


Scraps: Yes

Tears: I was laughing at the ridiculousness of the tutorial, so I didn't actually cry

Blood: No

Confusion: 10 (on a scale of 1-10)


Next time will be - I Have 3 Fat Quarters


I went back to listen to the July 2021 Sewing Playlist, but Body Count is in my head, and I just stumbled across this video.




Thanks for taking the time to discuss that, I feel strongly about this and so really like getting to know more on this kind of field. Do you mind updating your blog post with additional insight? It should be really useful for all of us. xvshealthsurvey.click
