I think I’ve overestimated my sewing skills. Seriously.

I had the bright idea to use this adorable coordinating fabric set for an 18″ doll quilt. In fact, so bright was my idea that I cut enough pieces for THREE quilts. THREE people.

THREE.

I typically do projects with a reasonably high margin of error. I have bad sewing habits and am not nearly as detail oriented as I ought to be, but I have been determined to change this. And I made every effort from the very start of this project to do it right.

Do you see those pins? Yeah, I used them! *holla*

On every single piece I was sewing, I used pins. I told you people, this girl’s making changes!

{shameless plug} I seriously LOVE sewing with the Brother Innovis. I cannot even explain properly just how beautiful of a machine it is and how smoothly it pulls the fabric through. I never want to live without her. Not ever.

Of course, using pins gave me a certain arrogance that led me to believe I had this in the bag. HA! Just 6 steps in I realized I had missed step 5. HOW?! WHY?!

It’s just not fair people. It seems I am incapable of doing a sewing project without pulling out this little seam ripper at least once! *cries*

So back to the *almost* start and I was off again, working ever so diligently to complete the first square of the Bonjour Quilt from Avery Lane Sewing {Etsy}.

And then THIS happened:

I gave up. I threw it all away.

Okay, I kid…I didn’t and I am determined to actually figure this out. But for now I did put it away so I could take a breather and stop hating my sewing life! hahaha….there are some things the Brother Innovis can’t fix, apparently 😉

Stupid seams….*bangs head*
