Yes, I know it has been a while. Just when I think I have my act together. The S**t keeps rolling downhill and I am in the path.
Life goes on and I will survive. I wont’ t bore you with all the details. Just life crap I was in no mood to deal with. It did not however, totally stop me from quilting/sewing, or you would have read about me in the paper LOL.
I hope you all had a lovely mothers day. I did. Spent the day making pillow cases for the guild charity. Went to dinner with the family and they surprised me with a Ninja Foodie, which I have used every day since….. I had an electric pressure cooker, which I loved, but this thing is the bomb – pressure cooker, air fryer and slow cooker all in one.
This quilt was an experiment. I liked this pattern, Baby Bento Box, which can be located at Ronda’s creations. Super cute and fast.
Anyway, I wanted to make this top with just fleece or Minky on the back without batting. I ended up using fleece, because it was an experiment and less expensive. Honestly, I don’t think I like the no batting part. What I love is how the quilting looks on the back. It looks good even when I am not. It seems that fleece will hide a lot. Honestly, it looks even better in person.
I am working on another one, which I will use with batting and Minky (already have it put together) to see if I like it any better. It is the lightweight feel that gets me. This would defiantly be a summer quilt.
Positive notes – New job is going well (or at least I think so), and I will have some exciting quilt news soon. Hard to keep in, actually.
I have missed you all.
