    Default If your material could talk.....

    After a recent fiasco (hot mess quilt - banished to my car trunk), if my material could talk....

    Batiks... hey what happened to being called bold and beautiful.. What's this about calling us "bruts" and "bullies"?
    Flannel... we were soft and fuzzy to your feel, and then we were referred to as "Fighters and Frayer's"
    Cottons... from cute to coy...

    And I must admit, the issue was with me .... putting so many different materials in the same sandbox (aka quilt) and expecting them to all get along was just too much to ask. I had picked a horrible cotton backing, and then used ugly needles (so the batiks claimed)... tensions issues, thread breaking.... etc...

    But I didn't give up, I ended up using the quilt for FMQ practice, and hot mess it was, a quilt only its mother could love!

    Cute post
    Mine would say "hey... remember me? You bought me 2 years ago, certain that you would use me in your next 'special' project!"

    My fabric would probably say...."Hey, lady! Get on with the organization already and finish your UFOs so you can start other projects!!!"

    My material would say, I will always be there for you. I will never judge. I am non fattening. Take care of me and we can have so much fun together. I need you just like you need me.

    Apparently my material and me are co-dependent.

    Ah yes the co-dependency. WE can always depend on our fabric to brighten a day!
