So I mentioned awhile back that I was taking a quilting class. My mother taught me to sew when I was 10. I quickly starting making my clothes (it was that or hand me downs as I was one of 7). There were always plenty of sewing machines around and my mother never denied me(that I remember) a new piece of fabric. I have loved sewing ever since, but now I sew more for my own enjoyment than for necessity (unless you call a set of pillowcases for every occasion a necessity, but that is a whole other subject). Anyway, I have always wanted to quilt(something my mother did not have a great interest in). My older sister and I are taking a banner of the month quilt class and here is what I am working on:
I have finished the top and have pinned the layers together and now I am ready to quilt it. This is the part that scares me the most as I know that it can make or break the quilt. Well, I have put it off long enough(excuse after excuse, did not have a walking foot, did not have a free motion foot). I now have all the right tools and tonight will be quilting! Wish me luck.
Here are some other things that I have in the works:
I also love to crochet and have recently found some Amigurumi patterns online. Can you guess what it is going to be?
Also, putting together a housewarming gift to send to my sister who just moved from California to Texas. I will show it as I work on it.
Well, I am off to quilt, chat tomorrow.
