Happy 2018!

1.08.2018

2017 left with me working on the petal quilt. It's set aside for now until I decide if it is done or if I want to try to wrestle this queen size quilt under my needle again and add some more quilting. You can read more about this quilt here and here. No matter what I decide, I already love it!


My favorite Christmas present, an Apple Watch...My hubby is thinking about getting one, too, now that he sees how much I use and enjoy mine. =) 


I will be teaching a few classes at Cotton Creek Mill in the next few months. One class will be how to baste a quilt sandwich and quilt it using a walking foot. Another will be on how to bind a quilt completely by machine, which I have taught before, and the Swoon block by Thimble Blossoms. What better way to kill lots of birds with one stone than to make a top using the Swoon pattern and use it for teaching in the basting/quilting class and binding class, as well as advertising for the Swoon block class. The fabrics I used are Basic Grey's Biscuits and Gravy and Grunge

As a side note, Camille updated her Swoon pattern since I bought mine when it was first released. It is much easier to follow and the pieces nest nicely! *big thumbs up* 2018 started out busy and fun! 


Until next time, may 2018 bring grace and peace to all of you!

  3. Love your quilting on the petal quilt. Like your watch. I broke down and bought a cheapy step tracker type watch. Which reminds me to keep moving. Oh your swoon sample is gorgeous. Updated pattern huh? Maybe I will have a chance to drag out mine and work on it this year. :D

  4. I love your petal quilt. A petal quilt is on my list to make some day. I would love to take the classes you will be teaching. The quilt sandwich and quilting part of my projects is something I have not done much of and machine binding a quilt I could use a few tips. I have not yet made a Swoon quilt but have the pattern and it is on my list also. Happy New Year!

    I am so glad to hear that you are off to a roaring start. I love the petal quilt too, and your quilting is exceptional.
    I like your watch, its that an apple watch or android? I have no idea. It does look very very trendy and brilliant.
    Your swoon blocks are beautiful.
    I love them together they look so fancy.
    Let's make this year a good one. Focus on courage and confidence.
