Last week I hinted at a quilt top I was working on for a challenge. Well, I finished it and submitted it. Woo Hoo, a real honest to goodness quilt top!. The challenge is called Patchwork Sassaman Style, based on Jane Sassaman’s book by the same name.
My Quilt top is Entry C, just in case you might want to vote.
Next, I am working on a project for the Sew We Quilt “All About Me” Blog Hop. (Button to the left) . I should probably have mentioned that I have no idea exactly what a blog hop is. Do you think that might be important. Hey. I did mention that I jump in with both feet. Well, it’s not due until February, but when you only sew on the weekends, I thought I should get started.. I can’t reveal anything yet, but here’s.a teaser:
As if all of that wasn’t enough, my lovely, Spoonflower cheater cloth arrived, so I can finally start quilting along instead of just reading along. This is from the very talented Leah Day and her Free Motion Quilting Project. I got it basted, which was an experience unto itself. That experience deserves a separate post.
Wowza, my first experience of pushing a big old quilt through a sewing machine.. hmmm, large object, small space.. reminds of something…(Is this going to get painful??? Give me drugs NOW!)
