I just realized this post is almost two years old, but I never finished it! So, since it is still valid I will finish it and post it now. Two posts in one week already? Maybe I am back to blogging….
So, lately my hobby of choice has been sewing. Besides helping with Community Quilts (part of the quilt guild) where we work on quilts that are donated to people in the community (which is also a social outlet for me) I have worked on a few quilts – one of them being the Lil Twister Table Runner from this post:
I also made a quilt wall hanging for a friend (Denise) who loves purses. I designed the quilt and it was inspired by Kim Schaefer’s ‘Calendar Quilts’. This was also the first time I had tried Free Motion Quilting. I think it turned out really good. The one thing that surprised me is how LONG it took me to make this. I think that is partly since I knew I was making it as a present and wanted to make it ‘perfect’. Well, it isn’t perfect, but Denise loves it.
