I was one of lucky winners in the Le Petite parade for February's project of "Sweet Spot." I won a Layer Cake of my choice from the Fat Quarter Shop! I was so excited and it took me a while to pick, but I finally chose the new fabric line from 3 Sisters called Grace. It just arrived!
I am extremely happy to report that my refrigerator was delivered today!!! WOO-HOO!! And speaking of gorgeous...
I never knew we had so many and the girls not being home, I have put off going grocery shopping. I will definitely need to go because the girls are coming home tonight. I can't wait to see their little faces light up when they see the new fridge!
I have been very busy working on my 30s quilt. It's taking me longer than expected because I've hit a few bumps in the road. I know it's all about the learning process of being a newbie longarmer. All my bumps have been in the quilting designs I wanted to do, not the quilting itself. The quilting is gorgeous, so that's a good thing. First, I wanted to curl feathers in the border. Well, the problem is you can't even see their beauty with the busy border fabric, nor could I really see to quilt them. I tried everything to make them work. I even tried several different threads, but eventually I had to concede that a simpler design was the way to go. This translated to a lot of frogging. Also, my backing fabric wasn't very conducive to heavy custom quilting either. It's too busy as well. I love that I'm learning all this NOW because it will help me when working with clients on choosing the best quilting for their quilts.
I took off the word verification setting when leaving comments. I wanted to make it easier and more enjoyable for readers to leave comments. We'll see how it goes. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
