Nothinig fancy, just some swirls, but I managed.
SO, this is a baby quilt for my nephew and his wife. My nephew is a huge Star Wars fan and I found this great pink Star Wars fabric on Etsy. Expensive, but super cute.
I don’t work well with deadlines, so this one creeped up on me. I was faced with either
using my domestic or getting crazy and attempting it on my long arm. Mission accomplished. THere is still a lot to learn though.
Worked on it today and struggled with thread breaks, but I will get it.
I backed this quilt with fleece and made the star Wars logo’s out of the same fleece.
I hope they like it.
I got a Handi-Quilter Simply Sixteen and a little foot frame. I am so excited. I have wanted one for a long time, but I find it so hard to spend money on something I want. I constantly think about the fact that I still have a child to educate blah blah blah. The household consensus was “you really need to do something for you”. SO, I got crazy and did.
It was super easy to set up. I was off practicing my quilting in no time. The hardest part was adjusting the tension.
Now I am afraid to start on one of the many tops I have waiting. I will have to bite the bullet and do it. I think I will likely start with one of my ugly quilts.
More to come.
Tomorrow is that day. The day I lost my sweet sister Kellie. While it huts every day, that day is a reminder that I would rather not have. I have to go to the office, which I am not sure is a good thing or a bad thing. Hoping it keeps my mind occupied. If nothing else, at least it will be just me, hiding in my office.
