Now it's official. I'm a convert. From what? I don't exactly know. What I do know is that the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is grab my iPad off of the bedside table and go straight to the Daily Deal. It's always exciting to see what marvelous pre-cut fabric or new-fangled change-your-life quilty tool is available at a steal-of-a-deal price. And then there are Jenny's fun tutorials. I love how she comes up with so many great ideas and shortcuts to make things quicker and easier. Because let's be honest…there are only so many hours in a day and days in a lifetime. I'll never have enough time in my life to stitch up all the things I want, so shortcuts are like tiny little victories. Also, Jenny's videos are presented with lots of smiles and usually a couple jokes, which makes them even more fun to watch.
When I saw the MSQC video for Iron Quilter 2 a couple months ago, first I laughed out loud; then I thought what fun it would be to participate. I've never entered any kind of quilting competition before, so I thought, "What the heck? I'll give it a go." I had an idea immediately and set to work with my graph paper. When the secret ingredient "Lovely" charm packs arrived, I had fun sorting through them and seeing all the pretty prints. I was happy that I had started work on the project early. There was plenty of time to put together what I had in mind.
Then a couple months rolled on by.
I can't remember exactly when I got the fabric in the mail, but long story short: I finished with precisely one day to spare. You know how sometimes life gets in the way of what really matters? (i.e.: quilting) Isn't that annoying? Ugh!
So here it is: my contribution to the Iron Quilter 2 Challenge. *phew*
