I have started working on the quilt squares I inherited. Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on the quilt design last week. I think I will alternate solid squares with the pieced squares in a checkerboard pattern. Whenever I have 5 minutes I try to sew a couple of pieces together. I am making progress, but it is slow. When my mother-in-law started piecing this quilt she did it all by hand. I decided that I would continue with what she started, all hand work, no machines, that would be cheating.
I have learned a few things:
1. I can't sew a straight line to save my life.
2. I am spending more time "unsewing" than actually sewing.
3. If I am lucky this quilt ought to be done by the time I am ninety.
