"I Want My Hat Back..."

| No Comments

I used a lot of techniques in this quilt.



I stressed so much when I thought about quilting the sheets.  I knew what I wanted to do, but I did not know how to actually do it on my set-up.  In my head, I had a deadline at the end of December.  That came and went and for multiple reasons the quilt sat unfinished.



It was hard to know I didn't know how to proceed.  A couple of weeks ago it came to me.  I needed to tie the sheets.  It crossed my mind that I should tack it, but that didn't feel right, so I searched through the house for my yarn bag.  The yarn bag didn't help.  Wrong colors.  Elsewhere in the house, I found yellow yarn.  Finally, I was relieved of so much stress.  Not only did I know WHAT to do, I had the materials to actually do it.



The flyers are machine quilted.  The sheets are tied.  The brown corner of the room is machine quilted.  The t-shirt is tacked, and the jeans will be tacked.  I have them free and clear now, but I don't think they will hold up for 20 years if I don't tack them.



I appliqued a hat in the corner because, "I lost my hat along the way..."



The past few weeks have been fairly emotional, and I am thankful for this win.  I sent off an e-mail to try to get an auction rolling.  I will put the quilt up on ebay and donate all the money.  As soon as it's up, I'll post the link.


Have you listened to the song yet?
