Machine quilting, Fifteen Minutes and More Retreat Musings
Halfway through machine appliqueing 300 leaves it occurred to me that I would have to quilt around each of these leaves. Actually, my thought was, "Holy smokes! What WAS I thinking?"
However, I am now almost at the halfway point of having quilted around them and they are looking GOOD! Yipee!
I have been managing to get a little 15 minutes of sewing in. So that this pile of scraps is becoming these.
Aren't they looking good? I plan to make one of those string appliqued tulip quilts from these. I'm thinking ahead. At our retreat, one of our discussions was about how far 15 minutes of play could take you (both creatively and just for getting something finished). I have done this before and it is addictive! Try it! Sometimes it is hard to stop!
I also had a few more tidbits about our retreat that you may not know. Rene' had the cutest pajamas you have ever seen (and she snores.) Amanda Jean sometimes buys and uses JoAnne's solid white instead of Kona. And Grubers quilt store in St Cloud, Mn will probably have sold more fabric in June than ever before, simply because Doris and Toni did some "serious" fabric shopping. Happy sewing and enjoy your 15 minutes this weekend!
