To all my new followers!! So glad you could drop in and see what I am doing. I hope you enjoyed looking around, and I hope you come back often.
I'm still trying to get out of my rut. It's supposed to be HOT for the next 3 days,blah!! Then we'll cool off into the 80s...at least, that's what they are saying now. So I hope the cooler temps will help with the quilting rut. I have so many things I want to do!
Right now, I am working on my friends baby quilt. I got it all basted and started quilting it today.
I am not a machine quilter, this is only the third baby quilt I'm attempting to machine quilt. I need lots of practice.
I'm a simple type of gal. I like the simple, easy going life...so that reflects in my quilts too, I think. I love the simplicity of straight lines....of course, there are many of you who do absolutely gorgeous long-arm quilting! I just love it. But, I don't think I will ever get that far. I do more intricate work when I hand quilt though.
This is as far as I've gotten...ONE block...the back is looking good, there are no puckers. But when I went from this block, to the next block I started getting puckers on the front?! What am I doing wrong? sigh~ at this rate it's going to take me a lot longer to quilt it than I had hoped.
I am not into making Halloween things, and I have a few nice Thanksgiving table runners, that's about all I decorate. So the next big holiday will be Christmas, and I need to start getting some things done for that.
I bought this lovely FQ bundle of Flurry from LolaPink Fabrics.
So that will be a nice start to C deco's. I have to get a secret santa gift done. So am trying to think of something cute to do. I think this bundle will be great for that project.
That's all the quilty news around here...
Have a great day all!
PS, don't forget to drop me a comment and leave me your name, if you're a wantobe quilter! LOTS of prizes you could win over at the Stash, come August.
