Well, after the tutorial and buckets I did on Saturday, I don’t feel like I made a lot of sewing progress. Probably because I had to do other things besides sew. I did make some progress on my 9-patches for the sew along though…..
I now have twelve blocks. Not too bad considering I just started last Monday. I am just picking out two fabrics that I think make a nice color combination for the block, not worrying about how they will be laid out. This is just a random layout here.
I did find some videos that have some really good tips on machine quilting, especially if you are a beginner in this area. At the HGTV website, you can find some short videos of Simply Quilting. In fact, you can find a lot of great ideas for sewing and other crafting projects there as well! You might want to check it out!
I am going to set myself some goals to try to finish some of my projects for the week:
Quilt my Courthouse Steps Wall Quilt (and give it a proper name!)
Decide on a pattern and the fabric for a baby quilt for a shower at work (it will be a girl!)
Make the label for the Coin Quilt I completed for my niece’s baby girl (born last week!)
More 9-patch blocks.
What are you working on this week?
