This is a project for all you quilters out there that have random blocks looking to be put to use!
This is a post for all you mothers out there that have random daughters wearing too short of skirts!
My quilt block was not perfect, but to me it was still really beautiful. I guess you could say the same thing for my daughter, and in my opinion, most humans. When I designed this bag, of course, I imagined that I would be using a square block. But, as I found out, my block wasn't square at all. "Oh, well, what are a few triangle points anyway?" I thought as I quickly ran my rotary blade across the the parts that didn't fit. Sure it's a bit smaller, but those parts weren't that important. Only the picky people will even notice!
When it comes to Kate, I'm pretty sure that the parts that stick out... the parts that don't fit the way I envisioned shouldn't just be whacked off, stretched or made to conform. Sometimes I doubt my resolve and find myself sharpening up my trimmer. But it seems if I were to use it... it would just cause damage.
I told her last night to wake up early so she would have time to model the bag for me this morning. When she came downstairs in this short dress (she usually has leggings under it, but today picked shorts that aren't even long enough to show) my initial response was to find a tactful way to get her to change. Just as I was going to try she said, "I feel pretty. It's going to be a great day!"
I put my sharpened trimmer away and gave her a hug. "I'm sure you're right," I said.
