Bloggers Quilt Festival

I picked this quilt because it is one of my firsts. This is the first quilt I stippled on my machine (and it shows) My house is full of yellow and red so this is a nice break from the norm. This quilt is actually inspiring me to repaint my home. The colors are so relaxing and "cool"

I have also learned that moda fabrics are the best. It is worth it to spend more money on the good stuff. Oh and I didn't use a pattern for this, just went with it.
I also realized that hand stitching the binding is the way to go...nothing compares, this is also where I mastered my corners..I just love the binding on this, don't you?

And the back is also from the Urban Couture line....butterflies with swirls, it is so relaxing.
i want to thank Amy for putting together the Bloggers Quilt Festival to give us all a chance to share our quilts.
Thank you so much for looking, don't forget to check out all the other MORE amazing quilts...

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.

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
