This is a pattern I tested for Denise at For the Love of Geese. I believe she calls it “Twilight”. I am far from a good paper piecer, however, I love the way this one turned out. I think I will eventually get the hang of things. It is mostly fabric I had. The only thing I purchased was the dark blue grunge border. I think it has a lot going on. The blues I used was leftover from a fat quarter pack I think that I got 20 years ago.
I am getting the hang of the longarm. I still struggle a bit with tension, but I used rulers this time and it came out pretty good. I am happy with my quilting. It is starting to look way better.
I do not know what I am going to do with this quilt, I have no plans at this time. I might just look at it for a while.
Happy New Year!
Love the new job, although it is kicking my butt. I am getting too old to learn new things LOL. I started this post on December 23rd and here we are January 13th. Jeez, where does time go? My intent was to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and then the battery on my laptop died and here we are.
Below is the Holiday display (Just took down) that I was going to show you all
Sort of an odd-looking block. I made it from my sister Kellie’s clothes. I have been looking at the bags of clothes I have that were hers and could not bear cut into them.
I finally did it. I have four bags and just opened one. My intent is to make these blocks highlighting something that I remember her wearing. I hope to put notes in the jeans pockets for my niece and nephew.
Still very hard. I actually kept a shirt for myself. I like to wear it because it is hers. I think these quilts will take a long time to complete. I will get there.
I miss you all.
