I have a question!!!
For the past few days, after dinner, I have been working on a new project. So, instead of washing the dishes or spending quality time with my hysband, I'm sewing a patchwork. Hopefully, if I don't screw up, it will become a picnic quilt. I never made a patchwork or a quilt! I actually had to look up those two terms on wikipedia...to make sure I had the right vocabulary!!! My plan was to use all the small pieces of fabric (in green and navy) that I had in my stash. I'm not following any pattern. I just go with the flow and play with the different fabric options. Such freedom :)However, now that the top layer of my quilt is done, I don't know what to do next!!! Batting? Quilted pattern? Bias binding? I'm a big girl, I can figure it out but if someone has some advice I will happily take it! One last thing, is it normal to get "patchwork headache" after a few hours of cuting/sewing/ironing???
