Thank you to everyone who commented on that blog post. I haven’t responded to you all, but I have read EVERY comment and I appreciate all of your lovely thoughts.
Here is what’s been happening in my sewing
My latest tips & tricks video for The Quilt Show was released on Monday and it’s all about getting that perfect, scant 1/4″ seam allowance. One of the first blog posts I ever did was How to Obtain a Perfect 1/4″ Seam Allowance. I use the exact same technique today, and I teach it in my beginning quilt classes. It works every time!
You all know that I love my dog, Cooper. He is one of those dogs that has a funny, mischievous personality. If he’s in a playful mood, we have to keep an eye on him. Shoes have a way of disappearing….
One day last week, my daughter asked me if it was o.k. if Cooper was chewing some white, fluffy material. Ummm, NO! That would not be o.k. This was going to be the batting for a baby quilt.
Now, it’s going to be the batting for some practice quilt sandwiches and maybe a wall hanging or some mini quilts. As they say, whey life gives you lemons… make lemonade!
I received some happy mail yesterday. I’m going to be playing with this fabric from Blank Quilting. This will be my big project for the month of July. I’ll give you more details later in the summer.
I’m still working on my Christmas in July project for Fort Worth Fabric Studio. I hope to have it finished by the end of June. Yikes! That’s just a week away!
I’m also working on a little project for next year. It will be exclusively for my blog readers, and I’m really excited about it and a little nervous at the same time. It’s actually a big project and it’s going to take a lot of thought and energy on my part. For now, I can show you this little block that is being tested out for it.
When I get up the courage, I’ll write a separate blog post about my project and my plans for next year. Until then, it’s back to the sewing room (and the graph paper/sketch pad).
Have a perfectly happy day!
