Behold... the most even edges to have ever come out of my machine

My mother got me a gift subscription for American Quilting and Patchwork magazine. And as soon as I saw this quilt I wanted to make a miniature wall-hanging of my own.

And so I whipped out some scraps, made a promise to myself I would pay attention to every seam and cut edge... and wala.

The most lined up and even square centers that I have ever created. Ignore the fact that the light purple and burgundy are slightly shorter at the ends, because as you can see...

They get cut off anyway, and I only had 4" squares of this material to work with.

And then came my first ever curved seam that was intended to lay flat. And it worked out.

I promise, promise, promise I have been sewing these past few weeks. I've got two shirts completed, one shirt almost completed, and a dress that is partially constructed and in that awful stage of limbo where I have no motivation for it.

And then, of course, this little four-squared wall hanging I started on a whim last night.

As soon as crazy projects and papers for this semester are over (next week! and then there's only finals left to go), I will have pictures and updates.
