I wanted to try doing a theme USA Quilt. This is what I've learned so far. It will not fit perfectly. Best to over size the midwest. I di mean overside and trim it down. Somehow i cut several states upside down. ( with directional print this is really important) I drew arrows on the states to show which direction the print should go. Than amazing i placed two states upside down. Lesson: TAKE YOUR TIME!. 😂

I have been thinking of making this quilt top for years. I am vowing to myself to do more and look at less I want to do. Ie: Pinterest. Lol there were problems the states are not flush. There was a big gap ( see picture) but i do not like filling it in with thread. Im leaving this one as is. For reference.

3/3/2021 I wore these cleaning out pens around the farm today. I am beyond happy with how they feel. Comfortable YES! I will say probably not super stylish but I am really happy. Ok very Happy😃This was a project! Looked easy on you tube but not so much. 6 days! A lot of seam ripping and in the end just making it work. I copied a pair of over alls I already had. But that did not work well. I had a great deal if bunching in the back. Thank goodness for a 1957 sewing machine. I added sone applique for fun and practice.
