There’s a new phenomena spreading through quilty blog land – 10 confessions of a quilter. Amy at 13 Spools started it, and others have been chiming in, including my friend Chelsea (isn’t her blog adorable?)
So, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and share a few (well, 10) of my dirty little quilting secrets.
- I usually don’t iron before I cut. Unless its excruciatingly wrinkly.
- I really dislike Quilter’s Dream batting. It sheds as badly as my cat, but doesn’t look adorable and purr.
- I ask my husband’s opinion on nearly every design choice. Yes, he doesn’t really care. And yes, I do usually ignore any opinion he gives.
- White and I don’t really get along. We had an argument about chocolate….
- I have an
unhealthyunwavering addiction to novelty prints.
- I use my rotary cutter as a seam ripper. Not some of the time, but the majority of the time.
- I don’t like AMH, Joel Dewberry, Amy Butler, or Cotton and Steel. There are one or two exceptions for each, but not many.
- Spray starch for $0.99 a giant can? Yes, please. More money for fabric.
- I machine bind quilts 99.9999% of the time. I always stab myself with hand needles, so why risk the blood stain at that late stage?
- I don’t bury quilting threads. I take a few stitches back and forth. Sometimes I get lucky and catch a low bobbin so I can finish that way too!
Can we still be friends?
What if I share an adorable kitty picture?
