So I went to the quilt shop and took my ties with me. I tried out bunches of different fabrics in all colors and both solid and prints. Nothing looked just right (what ever that may have been) but I did find a tonal grey and it looked BeeeUtiful. Well maybe not that good. But it will work!
I did get the grey all cut in strips and TRIED to lay this out in order to sew it. I got about half matched up and then I decide to try and sew a few solids and ties together. I tried THREE times to the the needle threaded (I half a self threading machine) and it kept getting tangled for some reason SOOOOO
I decided it was time to put it up! Maybe tomorrow night I will make more progress! Wish me luck!
