Show n Tell Friday!

I finally have something to show today! I had this top done for quite some time, i just didn't want to show it until it was completely done.On Park City Girls blog she was asking everyone what there favorite part of quilting was. Mine definitely is the binding! It's the finishing touch, and my mother n law gave me these fancy (expensive) pins and they are wonderful to use, I will never go back to the cheepies again.
And I love it when the corners turn out perfect!
Here is a close up of the stippling, this is my first quilt that I quilted on a long arm machine!
My mother n' law just bought a long arm quilting frame and I get to use it. We have been learning together.
The back is pretty plain jane...

And here is the overall pattern, It's a disappearing nine patch...the easiest layout ever!

Thanks for looking. And don't miss out on the other projects....there is much more to see on Amylouwho's blog!


  1. this looks beautiful. i love how turning the blocks in a disappearing 9 patch make it looks so different and fancy. the colors are beautiful. your binding is amazing. i also love a perfect corner. i think the binding is kind of soothing and i chose it as my favorite part of quilting as well.

  2. I like both sides, even if one is a little "plain jane". Great job!

  3. This is wonderful, I love the pattern and your choice of fabrics. I can only dream of the day when my quilt will be finished.

  4. I really like the back too! It looks very feminine and sweet. Nice work. I have long arm envy!

  5. what a beautiful quilt!! I love that D9P too! what a simple stunning pattern!

  6. Beautiful. Those corners look fabulous!

  7. It's beautiful! I was just admiring this pattern in a book or magazine earlier today.

  8. Pretty! Love the purple. (I also love the table runner in your blog banner! I love Verna!)

  9. Such a pretty quilt! Isn't it great when a quilt comes together nicely right down to the mitred binding corners. Nice job and I like the simple back!

  10. I don't think the back is plain jane at all! Very nice:) It's a beautiful quilt.

  11. Excellent fabric choices for the DP9 (my fave block). Your quilting is good!

  12. What a great quilt. I totally agree about the pins. My cheapies have gotten the flick. How lucky are you having a long arm so close and convenient. Quilting looks pretty good for your first time. I am pretty hopless at the free motion quilting. Need more time to practice. It must be great having all that open space to quilt on a long arm compared to a domestic machine. Keep going.

  13. That is so cute! Have fun learning on the long arm. It makes quilting so much faster and funner!

  14. This is a lovely quilt!!! Great binding and beautiful fabrics. Thanks for sharing.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy.

You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
