The Engineer's Quilt
I have never done ruler work and this quilt proves it! At this point, I am trying to do stitch in the ditch but really it is stitch and miss the ditch most of the time. ;-) It is taking me quite a bit of time to get used to following along the ruler and I have many jerky veers off the straight line and not only that, my straight lines are very frequently not in the ditch either.
I have had a few very startling moments because I must have hit the ruler at least four times - that will certainly get your heart pounding and jolt you back to reality!!
I am going to work on it some more this morning and I am actually looking forward to it even though I am still a bit intimidated by it. I know that I can only get better each time I try. I guess that is the best thing about starting at the bottom - you can only go up.
