Design Wall Monday 7-12-2010
It has been a while since I posted to Design wall because I have been dealing with my mom and moving her into the assisted living apartment. And the dentist, she had 9 cavities and cannot take anything with =caine in it to numb the drilling pain. Sign.
So for some reason yesterday I thought to begin a clamshell quilt. Not that I needed ANOTHER project to start over all the million UFO things hanging around. But hey.
The Quilt Seed was planted when Carrie commandeered the container that held my oriental fabrics. She unceremoniously dumped them in the midst of the cluttered worktable, I guess figuring I wouldn't notice. Carrie is 25 and married and not even living here and she continues to mess up my house.
So here is my clamshells. Oriental and black, so elegant. I love them already. The first thing I did was cut out the template from what I thought was the mylar material. But when I went to iron the seam allowance curve, I melted the template post haste.
So I searched for my mylar material and never found it. Instead I used some cardboard, but watch out if you do that, it can burn.
