I made a "quick" gift yesterday for a bridal shower tonight. Honestly I don't know why I do these things! It would have been so much quicker and cheaper to just buy a gift. But no.... I have to make something and it turned out to be a bigger challenge than I thought it would be.
It's a tea towel... how hard can it be?!?
I got the kit for this project at Kindred Spirits Quilt Company. Making the hexagons went well and attaching them to the quilt was all good.
But then came the ruffling part, which I have never done before.
Not even in the same league as quilting fun!
Oh well... it's done now, and I learned that I don't enjoy making ruffles!
And there it is.
The request for the shower was to bring "a tea towel that describes your personality or has a funny story attached to it". A quilter has to give a quilty kind of towel, so this definitely qualifies and she will know exactly who it's from. Hope it doesn't fall apart in the wash! LOL
And now back to our regularly scheduled quilting projects...
