A New Beginning

And so it begins again......

This obsession to cut up small pieces of fabric and sew them back together.....

This is a small project, a pillow, but I definitely want to make this as a quilt.

More to follow......

Happy Freakin Saturday!

First day of school finish!

Today was the first day back to school for my kids.  They were not nearly as excited as I was.....go figure.  I finally have the binding on my Italian tiles quilt and it has been washed.  I am very happy with it.  It was a lot of fun to make and I used some OLD fabrics that I hadn't seen in a long time.

 This is one of those quilts that just make me happy!  I really enjoyed every single step of the process on this quilt.  (I have made one or two quilts that I can't say that about.)  I particularly enjoyed quilting feathers but what is not to like about quilting feathers?

 And of course I love a pieced back!  Another thing that makes me happy!  Yipee!   ;)

Happy Monday!

Just as important to a quilt as design, color and pattern is texture.  It can make your quilt sing opera!

And quilting little projects will give you the opportunity to really hone your free-motion skills.

Happy Tuesday!

 I finally found a big chunk of time yesterday and I spent it making feathers.  An absolutely excellent way to spend a Friday.  I highly recommend it!

 It seemed like the stitch in the ditch took forever on this quilt and the free-motion zipped right along.  It sure does look good.

Here is a shot of the can really see the quilting from this angle.  Now it needs a binding and into the washer.......

Happy sewing!
