I'm sadly reporting that I can't sew a straight seam even when I'm using a ruler. And by ruler I mean a long ruler, two of those triangles for trigonometry and even a quilting ruler. Still no straight seam. Sad, sad realization for me.
This is my attempt at making a quilted placemat. It turned out too small to fit a plate because yours truly forgot to calculate in seam allowances. DUH!
I'm also having issues with sewing on bias tape to bind the finished quilted piece. And my quilting leaves much to be desired. I realize now that I'm miles away from my goal - making a bed-sized quilt with perfectly straight seams and prettily arranged blocks.
But don't worry, I'll get there.
And as you're sipping your coffee made by your food replicator, surfing on your holographic computer while waiting for the hovercraft to bring you to the international space station for your annual vacation on Mars, you're gonna say: That is the most perfectly straight seamed
bed-sleeping pod sized quilt with the prettiest arrangement of blocks I've ever seen!
