Sisters Quilting Expo has got in some wonderful new fabrics and she has got me to design some patterns for her using them. I always enjoy that until I get to the math part. I spent the day figuring out how much of each fabric was needed. I usually use EQ but, for some reason, they didn't get the calculations right.
I also have someone read everything a few times and she caught a couple of mistakes (wrong fabric given for one area). I admire people who design patterns for a living. It is a lot of mental work with not much in the way for financial reward. However, if someone enjoys making the quilt and the quilt itself, that helps make the work worthwhile.
I have been trying to get at the quilt I have in the frame and finally found some time yesterday. Before starting I had to wind a bobbin. Then I ran out of thread and I didn't have anymore. Argh.
Oh well, it will get done eventually. In the meantime, I have another pattern to do.
