I really enjoyed quilting “Sweet Life With Pumpkins” from Lauren B. in the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. Squares are so much fun to quilt; it’s almost like quilting a giant tetris game.
Squares: Semi-custom mostly squares on jelly roll quilt pieced by Lauren B.
After I finish quilting, I like to fold up the quilt, and tie a bow of fabric around it.
Happy, happy new year.
2014 marks my 10 year quilting anniversary, and I can’t believe how much I’ve learned in the past decade. My head is swimming with project ideas for 2014. I have a goal this year to finish at least one WIP/UFO a month and to start and finish one project that has been planned and living only in my mind (with the fabric already purchased). I drafted a list of projects, and I am anxious to get started. If only I could clone myself for ’round the clock sewing sessions.
However, before I can crack open my projects boxes, I have the exciting opportunity to teach my 10-year-old niece how to sew a pillowcase. She received her first sewing machine for Christmas, and is staying with us for a couple of days. The snow today means that we’ll be “shopping” from my stash tomorrow. It’s a good lesson in using what you have, which is a serious goal for me this year. As much as I enjoy collecting fabric, it’s past time to cut it up and sew it back together again.
Happy new year, and happy sewing.
