Except that I clearly do. As you can see in this very askew quilted (or is it patchwork?) tote below.
In a spur of late night inspiration I finally figured out what to do with this Sublime Stitching embroidery I stitched ages ago.
Getting a ruler out and measuring everything seemed like too much work, so I decided to eyeball everything. Big mistake.
Turns out you really do need a ruler for quilting. Or at least a good eye.
