I'm gonna do it!

For this baby, along with our traditional crocheted blankie for the wee one, I am planning on trying my hand at quilting. Quilting has long intimidated me. All that cutting, planning, arranging, sewing, quilting, etc.etc.etc......I just stayed away.

Yet I happened to stumble across "Rag Quilt" from Kathy, From the Mission Field of the Home.

This I can do!
(I think)

She assures her readers that it really *is* simple, just some basic cutting and simple sewing. Since it's for a baby, it can be light-weight and doesn't need batting or any extra layers. Again, I *think* I can do this.

I have about 30 weeks to figure it out.
(I know that *seems* like a long time, but really, in "Momma-Time" it's not that long)

Ok, time to get back to the camping laundry that seems to be multiplying before my very eyes. Later my friends~

If you start your quilting experiences with charm packs, which is just 5" squares of fabrics, most of the cutting is done for you! You can do it! If you make a mistake, just say to yourself, "Oh well, no one will notice." It works for me every time. LOL
