Don't know if you have run across this post from Crafty Garden Mom from a year ago with her 7 dirty quilting secrets but it has resurfaced as funny blog posts often do and it is hilarious!!! When I was reading it, it was as if she had read my mind. But I would like to add a couple of my own secrets to the "dirty laundry list of quilting"
I am a lazy quilter. It's true, I will look at a quilt pattern and if it requires anything with 7/8's or 8ths of any kind, I round up. I am not known for my 1/4 inch perfection in any quilting circle so I figure the extra 1/8 of an inch will "come out in the wash" as they say. In addition, if it requires y-seams, templates, any type of precision or pieces smaller than an inch and a half, I'm OUT. I will claim that it is because my quilting time is so little and precious to me but really I am a BIG FAT LAZY QUILTER.
I like to "pretend" shop for fabric. I get numerous emails from websites like Equilter, (heart u!) with notices of special sales, etc. On any given evening, I can be found sitting with my ipad watching TV with hubby and loading up my cart with luscious amounts of fabric and then... I close my browser and go to bed. It doesn't always work but a lot of the time, the fun of choosing the fabric and thinking about the gorgeous quilt I could create is enough to keep me happy and out of trouble.
What about you?? Do you have a secret you'd like to share??
