another hoochy mama
I am teaching the hoochy mama class at Branums sewing and vacuum on Dec 13...i had thought about making a pink one but could not find any pink and green polka dots when i dropped the other hoochy mama quilt off at Branums...and i found this great green lime green and red one by RObert Kaufman...that was all it took to get me to make a Christmas Hoochy Mama...what better quilt for a Christmas time class?...wild and zany once again
I started cutting it up at our guild retreat Friday nite about seven ...went home for the nite and by 2 pm had sewn up nine blocks...i would have had more done IF i had not decided to do the churn dashes off kilter...whacky...all the cuts in the nine patch were not parallel...I had one of them left over...so i pieced it together today while i was chain piecing the wild geese....i mean i would NOT want to get bored...i finally figured out that if i put a piece of tape on the side i was sewing i would not twist the pieces...next time i would number them too...i hate to think of how many pieces i twisted in the first two whacky drunkards paths....of course though this one went together perfectly i really should deconstruct it so that the corner blocks show up better...
this one MIGHT end up as a small quilt for a Christmas present or it could end up in the leftover block pile with the leftover block from the last hoochy mama quilt...
Now i think i need to make a story quilt....what was that line about the mistake fairy???? after all i have to unsew the christmas top on the right...the wild geese trees are upside down...sighhhhh...and here i was going to have it quilted by midnite:> BG
wonder what the kids at school will think about it...they wanted to sit on the black one after they got done ohing and ahing over it...show and tell for tomorrow
