Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I really did'nt relize what an air-head I really was until I started going deeper in the old stash.I have got boxes of basted applique peices that I don't even know what quilt they go to. LOL Time to make new with something that was meant for something else, whats a gal to do
I have hand quilted a total of 2 quilts, I love doing it but I'm not a fast hand quilter, no one ever taught me the ropes of hand quilting, and just like making quilts I've pretty much learned on my own. As long as you have someone else to share the learning with I sure you'll enjoy it, good luck my friend and let me know how you do. It's always fun to advance into new stuff.
LOL, quilters are so funny, I to just cleaned out 1 of my sewing rooms.My husband put up an 8 foot peg board for me and I went to work.OMG you would"nt beleive the templates and tools I found,stupid enough, I found some had been bought several times.Some that they don"t even make anymore. Gods I feel like I"m in a quilt store. Scissors, OMG.I won"t need new ones for a hundred years. But the best Part is finding all the quilts that were started and waiting for some attention. If you remember I said earlier that 2012 was going to be UFO"s. I think I might have to extend that to 2013.I had to be nuts to start some of these quilts, good intentions but nuts. Sending hugs my friend-Cindy
Wait for the UFO swap after the holidays! Then swap and sew for charity.
My biggest problem is the quilting part. Can't have any company because my guest room bed is piled high with things to quilt. I have to make a plan I think.
Absolutely! I love UFO's! There's usually something to suit your mood/frame of mind/ambition or lack of same. Always something to do if you so choose. Seems there's always a group in the guild that wants to start the year with a Finish UFO's Contest! What's that all about? I'd just have to make more.
My husband says I have quilters ADHD - when in the middle of something, another project catches my eye and the first one is forgotten. Instead of shiny things, it's fabric and another pattern that catches my eye.
Betty, don't feel bad, it's my understanding that a good many of us suffer from the same malady, lol.
Your husband is absolutely correct, we"re all nuts but what a way to go. LOL
