Happy TTMT everyone!
This upper respiratory infection is really kicking my behind, and I’m just not up for making a video this week. I did really push last week, however, to get a little bit of sewing done between napping and resting. I managed to finish the quilt that inspired me to want to learn how to quilt in the first place. I originally wanted to learn how to sew and quilt so that I could make a baby-clothes quilt for my then newborn. Now that my son is 10 years old (on Jan. 2nd), I have finally finished!!!!
This quilt was definitely a labor of love, especially since I didn’t “math” before I started. I relied on the quilt gods and goddesses that it would all just work out. Many Y-seams and small fill-in patches later, it’s done!
Now, I’d love to say that I’m never making another quilt like this, but I have a 7-year-old daughter who is now waiting fo her quilt. I will, however, “math” that one out before I start. I have a king-size quilt on my longarm now that I’m working my way through, then I have a quilt for a customer, and then this baby-clothes quilt will be on the machine. Once I’ve got it all topstitched, I’ll make sure to show it again in a video. It’ll be another custom, hand-guided quilt job for me, since I’ll have to get around a lot of buttons and zippers that I left in.
I’m looking forward to watching all of your videos, and I hope to be back with a video myself next week. Until then, happy sewing!
Hi quilting friends! I’ve been on quite a break from posting, but I have been keeping up by watching videos from time to time. I’ve been home sick from work yesterday and today (which is quite rare for me), so no video for me this week, but I can’t wait to join back in next week. I always find it so inspiring to see all of your creativity and progress.
Happy Saturday Morning-
This week seemed to get away from me, and now it’s Saturday morning and I still haven’t filmed my TTMT video for this week. I figure I’ll just wait and save everything for this upcoming week. In fact, my schedule just might allow for a video to be posted on time this week! I’ve enjoyed watching and commenting on all of your videos this week, and look forward to jumping in again next week.
